The country of Guyana has a population of just 800-thousand people and, according to the World Bank, is among the poorest in Latin America, following Haiti and Nicaragua. The small nation has been governed by the same political party since 1992 and recently held presidential elections.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was part of a delegation that traveled there to oversee the election. His international rights organization, “The Carter Center,” monitors elections and performs humanitarian work.
Correspondent Stephen Gibbs had a chance to sit down with President Carter to talk to him about Guyana. They also discussed U.S. relations with Latin America and China.
