Michigan will be the second state after Wisconsin to conduct recount of the presidential votes. The state could not be called weeks after polls closed because the race was tight. But when it was eventually called, Mr Trump won with less than 10,000 votes.

It will be recalled that Attorney General of Michigan, Bill Schuette, filled a lawsuit last week urging the court to halt recount. Schuette, a Republican argued the recount will cost voters millions of dollars and could cause the state to lose “their voice in the Electoral College”.

However, US District Judge Mark Goldsmith, has issued an order to election officials in Michigan to commence recount starting at noon on Monday. The judgement will be a welcome development for Ms Stein and her team. And will give them motivation to keep moving.
