Carter Center Reaffirms Statement of Agreement between Guyana's President and Opposition Leader

GEORGETOWN, GUYANA... On Wednesday, March 21, 2001, The Carter Center issued a press release with an attached statement drafted by President Carter. President Carter had shared a draft of the statement with the two main political party presidential candidates on Wednesday morning before leaving Guyana. While neither presidential candidate signed the statement, both indicated verbally to President Carter that they supported the content of the document.

The statement covers principles and objectives to help to find a way forward for Guyana after the elections and reflects already agreed upon goals emanating from the constitutional reform process. It also expresses a willingness to cooperate in achieving these goals and creating the necessary supportive political environment. As such, the statement is a reaffirmation of shared principles rather than a signed or brokered agreement.
