The Democratic Party of the United States has confirmed Joseph Biden as its presidential candidate in the November elections. This decision was made at a national convention in Milwaukee (Wisconsin).
The vote, which was attended by delegations from all states and territories, was held in a virtual format due to the pandemic. Representatives of the delegations of the American states and overseas territories took turns announcing whether their delegates would vote for Biden or Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. He was Biden's main rival in the internal party struggle but withdrew from the race in April.
Biden crossed the minimum required vote threshold (2,374) when the North Carolina delegation announced its decision.
Biden received over 3,550 votes, Sanders over 1,150.
Earlier, former US President Bill Clinton said that the White House, under the American leader Donald Trump, has become the epicenter of chaos. They say the Democratic candidate will be a radically different president, Clinton added.
