GEORGETOWN, GUYANA - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has urged Guyana's election commission to release election results and called on political leaders to act responsibly.

"I call on GECOM to urgently publicize all of the results that it has received and reviewed in Georgetown. Political leaders should act responsibly and allow GECOM to continue its work," Carter said. "The law provides for recounts, and the submission of election petitions following the declaration of results by GECOM."

"All sides should avoid taking unnecessary actions that could contribute to a climate of fear or threaten peace. I urge the Guyanese people to remain patient and to reflect the dignity and integrity of what took place on election day. The voters have spoken and the results will be available soon."
