Biden transition team to meet with federal officials in days ahead

United States President-elect Joe Biden's campaign commended the General Services Administration (GSA) for allowing the delayed transition process to formally begin. The transition and federal officials will start meeting in days ahead to discuss issues including pandemic response and national security, Biden transition adviser Yohannes Abraham revealed in a statement.

"Today's decision is a needed step to begin tackling the challenges facing our nation, including getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track," Abraham said.

The process had been stalled for weeks as the Trump administration rejected election defeat alleging widespread voter fraud was responsible for the outcome of the election.
