Roy Moore says he passed polygraph

"Also provided in the complaint is an affidavit from Judge Roy Moore stating that he successfully completed a polygraph test confirming the representations of misconduct made against him during the campaign are completely false", Moore's campaign said in a press release. "I will be an independent voice and work to find common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get Washington back on track and fight to make our country a better place for all", Jones said.

The Republican faced multiple sexual misconduct allegations in the month before the election.

"Doug Jones will be certified today at 2 p.m. eastern time, 1 p.m. central time", Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN's New Day this morning.

A Montgomery circuit judge at this hour is having a telephone conference with attorneys in Republican Roy Moore's last-ditch effort to stop Democrat Doug Jones from being declared the victor in the Alabama Senate election.

The state of Alabama on Thursday certified Democrat Doug Jones as the victor of this month's special Senate election after a judge denied Republican Roy Moore's effort to halt the process via a last-ditch lawsuit charging widespread voter fraud. He said he stood for the truth and has no regrets, closing his statement by saying "To God be the glory".

Judge Johnny Hardwick ruled that his court did not have jurisdiction to prevent Secretary of State John Merrill from certifying the election results.

Bharti Airtel was followed by Sun Pharma , Yes Bank , Tata Steel and Dr Reddy's Laboratories , which also witnessed brisk buying. In the last two trading sessions, the stock has surged over 80%. "The Sensex , too, closed below the psychological 34,000-mark".

Mr Moore has not conceded the race to Mr Jones and has sent several fundraising emails to supporters asking for donations to investigate claims of voter fraud.

Alabama "will suffer irreparable harm" otherwise, the complaint argues, going on to urge state leaders to call a new special election. "It's time to move on", Sam Coleman wrote in an email.

It cited "irregularities in 20 precincts" of the state's Jefferson County which it said were "enough to reverse the outcome of the election", quoting the views of conspiracy theorist Richard Charnin who claims the 2004 presidential election and 2016 Democratic primary were also rigged. On Wednesday, he filed a last-minute legal complaint alleging election fraud.

But Mr Moore's campaign has alleged the vote may have been rigged.

The number has been raised to 118 voter fraud complaints, with 85 so far having been adjudicated, Merrill said.

Moore denied all allegations, and his campaign doubled down on some of his more controversial positions. "Moore's desperate efforts to challenge this election and cast doubt on Beverly and the other women who allege that they were victims were and will continue to be unsuccessful". He's filling the seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
