It is reported that the Republican Party will secure the majority when the final results are received in the 435-member House of Representatives.
The Republican Party leads in 199 seats and the Democratic Party in 168 seats. If 218 seats are secured, the majority can be confirmed in the assembly.
The Republican Party captured six seats held by the Democrats.
If the Democratic Party loses its majority in the House of Representatives, it is estimated that President Joe Biden’s next term will be a big challenge.
The counting of votes is currently in the final stage.
Opinion polls before the election indicated that the Democratic Party would suffer a major setback and the Republican Party would win with a large majority.
The current trend also indicates that there will be a change of power in the House of Representatives.
In the Senate, the two parties are still on an even footing. 47 Republicans and 46 Democrats in the Senate, which requires 51 seats for a majority.
