January 18 According to a report by Chinese website of the United States, the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Biden will be held in Washington, D.C., the capital, on January 20.
Vice President-elect Harris will also be sworn in on the same day, and the United States will welcome the first female vice president. According to the latest news, Harris will resign as a senator in Congress on the 18th.
Harris has reportedly notified California Governor Newsom of this.
According to Harris aides, she is expected to announce her resignation from the Senate on the 18th.
Newsom has announced that he will appoint California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill Harris’s remaining term, which is scheduled to end in 2022.
According to the report, Harris was elected to Congress in 2016, one of only three African-American senators in Congress.
Although incoming Sen. Rafael Warnock will stabilize this total, Harris is the only African-American woman senator to serve and the second African-American woman in Senate history.
Harris, who was elected vice president, would break the ceiling of women in American politics, and she would become the highest woman in public office in American history.
The report pointed out that although Harris will resign from the Senate, she has not completely left the Senate.
After taking office as Vice President, she will also automatically serve as the chairman of the Senate.
The title allowed Harris to preside over the Senate and break a 50–50 tie between the Senate, giving Democrats a Senate majority in the new Congress.
