Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter laments passing

Jimmy Carter

The Right Honorable George Price was well known across this hemisphere and beyond. His commitment to the advancement of democracy placed him among an exclusive club of world leaders. Just before news time this evening, the former US president Jimmy Carter issued a message to the Price family which reads “We lament the passing of George Price, founding father of Belize and good friend of The Carter Center. His humble personality belied the stature of his statesmanship. He served as vice president of the Council of Freely Elected Heads of Government of the Americas and served with me on election missions in Nicaragua, Haiti, Panama, and the Dominican Republic. His courage, wisdom, and good humor were a gift not only to Belize but to all of the Americas. We will miss a dear friend.” We’ll have more on the tributes to Price later in the newscast.
