Aides to the Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have confirmed that she will resign her Senate seat on Monday, days before she and President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20.

Kamala will leave the Senate shortly after Democrats narrowly secured a majority there, winning two election runoffs in Georgia this month. With Democrats holding 50 of the chamber’s 100 seats, Harris will cast tie-breaking votes. She will not give a farewell speech on the Senate floor as it is not set to reconvene until Tuesday.

Also, kamala Harris’s seat will be filled by Democrat Alex Padilla, California’s Secretary of State, who was selected by Governor Gavin Newsom. Padilla will become the first Latino senator to represent the state, where about 40 percent of residents are Latino.

Authorities have warned of further violence surrounding the inauguration and put increased security in place in Washington, DC, and various US state capitals.

In the light of the inauguration, Harris will become the first woman to serve as vice president, as well as the first Black person and person of South Asian descent to fill the role. She had previously been only the second Black woman to hold a Senate seat.
