The president, Barack Obama, will have to deal with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives (the lower house of Congress) and the Senate (the upper house), which will tend to oppose his legislative programme. Mr Obama has vowed to take "executive action" to change policy in areas where he does not need congressional approval.

With a Congressional majority, Republicans will try to loosen regulatory requirements, taking aim at the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory law, the 2010 healthcare law and environmental regulations. A full-scale repudiation is unlikely, but Republicans could succeed in chipping away at parts of these laws.

Relations with Russia are at their lowest level since the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The conflict in Ukraine is far from being resolved and tensions between Russia and the West are likely to remain high for several years.
