US Democrats gain majority in Senate

In the United States, Democrats took over the majority in the Senate after the House of Representatives, with the new senators taking the oath.

Washington DC

On the day the US President Joe Biden took his oath, the Democrats took another important step, with their two new senators swearing in the Senate.

Democratic senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who won the Georgia 2nd round election on January 5, because the results were not clear in the 3 November 2020 elections, took an oath at the Senate General Assembly.

With this result, Democrats reached 50 senators in the Senate, while Republicans remained in 50 senators. Democrats have regained the majority in the Senate, when Vice President Kamala Harris, who chaired the Senate, took an oath and officially took office yesterday.

Democrat Harris has the right to vote if there is a tie in the vote. With this result, Chuck Schumer, leader of the Democrats in the Senate, earned the title of “Senate Majority Leader”.

Democrats, who won the majority in the Senate after the White House, also hold the majority in the House of Representatives.
