Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has cut short a visit to Guyana due to health reasons his foundation reported on Sunday. The former President was in the country to observe ongoing democratic elections.

Sunday’s statement said that the 90 year old former President is returning to Atlanta and did not disclose specifics, only saying Carter was “not feeling well.”

The Guyana observer mission marks his foundation’s 100th mission. While Carter himself has returned home, his staffers will remain in the South American country to observe the vote.

The trip had marked Carter’s 39th mission abroad to supervise democratic elections. .

Guyana’s national elections are being held Monday, which is more than a year earlier than scheduled. The reason is because President Donald Ramotar had suspended Parliament to avoid a no-confidence vote, pitting his People’s Progressive Party against an opposition coalition.
