Joe Biden should be certified as the winner of the election and the presidential transition process needs to begin, a nonpartisan group of presidential transition experts urged in a letter on Sunday.

The Center for Presidential Transition, which advises incoming administrations, wrote to the General Services Administration that “while there will be legal disputes requiring adjudication, the outcome is sufficiently clear that the transition process must now begin.”

The letter continued that "we urge the Trump administration to immediately begin the post-election transition process and the Biden team to take full advantage of the resources available under the Presidential Transition Act. This was a hard-fought campaign, but history is replete with examples of presidents who emerged from such campaigns to graciously assist their successors."

President Donald Trump has so far refused to concede the election and said he would mount legal challenges in several states, The Hill reported.

However, Mick Mulvaney, the president’s former White House chief of staff told CNBC that “you can absolutely guarantee a peaceful transition of power” from the president.
