Biden camp calls for GSA to recognize victory so US presidential transition can begin

WILMINGTON, Delaware, Nov 9 (Reuters) - An official in U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team said on Monday said the General Services Administration (GSA) must recognize Biden’s election victory over incumbent Donald Trump so that a transition of power can begin.

The federal agency normally recognizes a presidential candidate when it becomes clear who has won an election, an official told reporters on a call, adding that the transition team may take legal action.
