MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. The US political system will become even more misbalanced and unpredictable after the latest midterm elections, a senior Russian senator told reporters on Wednesday.
"There was no sensation. The outcome of the elections is in line with the main forecasts. Naturally, both [parties] will try to present the outcome as their victory. But I’m afraid that the US political system will be among losers, becoming even more misbalanced and unpredictable, up to attempts to launch the impeachment procedure," Konstantin Kosachev, the chair of the Russian Federation Council’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said.
He also said that "the part of the world, which depends on domestic US political wrangling whether it wishes it or not" will also be among the losers.
The midterm elections in the US took place on November 6. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 out of the 100 seats in the Senate were up for grabs. In addition, 36 states and three territories held gubernatorial elections. Besides, 6,073 state and local officials were also elected.
According to US media forecasts, the Democratic Party is likely to get the majority in the House of Representatives, while the Republican Party will keep its majority in the Senate.
US President Donald Trump broke the eight-hour silence in his Twitter to describe the elections as "tremendous success.".
