Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina congratulated United States President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. 

In a message sent on Sunday, the Premier congratulated the two newly-elected leaders. The information has been provided in a press release sent from the press wing of the Prime Minister. 

Democrat Joe Biden won the US presidency beating Republican incumbent Donald Trump in a heated election to become the 46th president of the country. His running mate Kamala Harris made history being vice president as the first Black woman.

Joe Biden said voters had given him a “convincing” victory after he was projected to have defeated Donald Trump.

“Folks, the people of this nation have spoken. They’ve delivered us a clear victory, a convincing victory,” an ebullient Biden told a victory rally in his home state of Delaware.

Besides, Kamala Harris declared her victory as just a beginning for women while she was elected to be the top-ranking female leader in US history.

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” Harris told a rally as she introduced President-elect Joe Biden at a victory rally in Delaware.
