FILE — In this Wednesday, May 23, 2012 file photo, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, center, observes the election process inside a polling station in the Sayeda Aisha neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt. Carter is warning Egypt that its transition to democracy after years of political turmoil is faltering ahead of presidential elections planned for later this month, in a statement Friday, May 16, 2014. His Carter Center won’t be sending observers for Egypt’s May 26-27 election, which many believe retired Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi handily will win following the overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi last year that he led.
