US President-elect Joe Biden will announce cabinet picks on Tuesday, his top aide Ron Klain told ABC News on Sunday.

"You're going to see the first cabinet picks this Tuesday," he said, adding that Biden himself would make the announcement.

He declined to give more details on the posts to be announced.

Cabinet posts have to be approved by the Senate. Control over the Senate remains to be determined, as there are two run-off races to take place in January in Georgia.

If Democrats can upset the Republicans, the Senate would be split, though Biden's party is not currently favoured to win.
