If good things come to those who wait, then Barack Obama and Joe Biden must be rubbing their hands in delight.

The US Congress has finally confirmed them as winners of last year’s presidential election.

At a joint session of the Senate and House of
Representatives, lawmakers carried out the final phase of a process known as the Electoral College that dates back to the founding of the nation.

Electors were picked on Election Day, based on the popular vote.

In approving and then adding up individual certification documents, they confirmed that Democrats Obama and Biden beat
Republican challengers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, 332-206. At least 270 electoral votes are needed to win.
