Malacañang on Sunday congratulated Joe Biden on his election as President of the United States of America.
Biden won 284 Electoral College votes against incumbent President Donald Trump’s 214.
“Congratulations and we wish him all the best,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.
Roque said the government looks forward to working closely with the Biden administration “anchored on mutual respect, mutual benefit, and shared commitment to democracy, freedom and the rule of law.”
The Palace, he added, also committed to “further enhancing the relations with the United States under the new administration of President-elect Biden.”
