Pennsylvania court upholds Trump’s vote counting suit

A Pennsylvania court upheld a claim by the headquarters of US President Donald Trump on the legality of the votes cast by mail in the presidential election.

Trump’s staff insisted that State Secretary Katie Primer had no right to extend the deadline for authenticating mailed ballots from six days after the election to nine days. The court ruled that she really did not have such powers. In this regard, some of the received ballots were rejected.

A separate case in Pennsylvania is underway on another lawsuit by Trump’s headquarters: in it, he demands to prohibit the authorities from approving the results of elections in the state. Officials have already asked a federal judge to dismiss the claim.
