ATLANTA (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter is congratulating the people of Egypt on taking the first steps toward a new era of democratic legitimacy.
The Georgia Democrat says in a statement that he wants Egyptians to know they have the international community's support as they work to build a truly democratic nation after the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.
The Atlanta-based Carter Center says it stands ready to assist Egyptians in the transition, but warned the president's resignation is only a step toward self-governance. It called for an inclusive transitional government that can lead Egypt through elections.
