The US Midterm elections are for Congress, which is made up of two parts – the House of Representatives and the Senate. These votes are held every two years and when they fall in the middle of the president’s four-year term of office, they are called the midterms. Congress makes nationwide laws. The House decides which laws are voted on while the Senate can block or approve them; confirm appointments made by the president. Each state has two senators, who sit for six-year terms. In the critical midterm elections in the United States, Democrats performed better than most analysts had predicted. President Joe Biden termed the midterm polls a “good day” for democracy and took a jibe at Republicans, saying that the ‘red wave’ did not materialise. International experts share their views on The Global Debate.
