The Republican Party secured control of the US House of Representatives by a simple majority, winning at least 218 seats, according to estimates by CBS News, the BBC’s US partner.

Although the majority achieved by the Republicans is simple, it is enough to disrupt President Joe Biden’s agenda for the next two years.

Democrats retained control of the Senate.

The United States witnessed midterm elections last week, and the performance of Republicans, who had hoped to regain control of both houses, fell short of expectations.
