Disinformation narrative about the 2020 US Presidential Election.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden was elected the 46th President of the United States on 7 November, beating incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump, by securing more than the required 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House.
The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), which has been observing US elections since 2002, found the 2020 general election to be "competitive and well managed" despite the logistical issues presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The second group of international election observers from the Organisation of American States (OAS) reported its members did not see any evidence of fraud despite President Trump's assertions that widespread fraud affected the election. The OAS’ preliminary report, released last week, was based on 28 experts from 13 countries who witnessed the election proceedings in Washington, D.C., and four states: Georgia, Iowa, Maryland and Michigan. The expansiveness of the observation was inhibited by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organisation noted.
