Regstreekse opdaterings: Hooggeregshof weier die versoek van GOP om die sertifisering van die verkiesingsuitslae in Pennsylvania te staak

The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request from GOP allies of President Trump to stop the certification of Pennsylvania’s election results.

The high court left intact a decision from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which tossed a lawsuit from Rep. Mike Kelly daag 'n 2019 wet om posstemming uit te brei. The GOP appeal to the high court was referred to U.S. Supreme Court Associate Regter Samuel A. Alito Jr., wat dit toe na die volle hof verwys het.

FAST FACTS

    • Kelly, 'n Republikein, sought to have the court toss all the state’s mail-in ballots
    • She wants the courts to rule that more than 2.5 million mail-in ballots are tossed, which would all but secure a victory for President Trump in the Keystone State

The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the order said.

Alito had earlier ordered Pennsylvania officials to respond Kelly’s election challenge a day earlier than previously scheduled, the same day known as the safe harbor deadline.
