Alabama's Republican Senator Richard Shelby, who refused to support Mr Moore, told AFP he hoped Mr Bannon would bow out of politics, but did not think he would.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has said it is "highly unlikely" that Jones would not be certified as the victor of the election.

Jones is the first Democrat in a generation to win a Senate seat in Alabama, beating Republican Roy Moore amid a firestorm of allegations that the GOP candidate had sexually abused teens. Trump on Friday said that he believed Moore should concede the race. Representative Terri Sewell (D-Alabama) also spoke to CNN and said she had the "utmost confidence" that Jones "won outright".

While the final results in Tuesday's upset victory for Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama's U.S. Senate special election won't be known for a few weeks, the unofficial results from the race show that write-in votes may have played a crucial role in determining the outcome of the race.

"Don't let the Republican handwringing distract from the fact that the strategic missteps Mitch McConnell and his allies made in Alabama led to Roy Moore's nomination", the memo says.

The election must undergo a certification process that will make sure votes are valid.

The results of Alabama's Senate race will be certified between December 26 and January 3 after counties report their official totals.

According to Alabama law, an automatic recount will be triggered if the margin between Jones and Moore is less than 0.5 percent.

Four winter sessions of Parliament shorter than present one: Minister
However, with no signs of attention given to strengthening the parliamentary democracy, the NDA government has only worsened it over the UPA regime.

A viral rumor went around social media claiming that black voters were caught trying to vote with fake IDs.

Mr Trump endorsed Mr Moore even as other party leaders in Washington walked away from him, but Mr Jones, 63, a former federal prosecutor, portrayed the campaign as a referendum on decency and promised the state's voters he would not embarrass them in Washington. He has maintained that he is not guilty of any misconduct, and since losing the election has doubled down on his claims that there is a political plot created to take him down.

Roy Moore continues to refuse to concede the Alabama special election, saying in a new video that his campaign is waiting for ballots to be certified. "This election was tainted by over $50 million from outside groups who want to retain power and their corrupt ideology".
