The head of Tunisia's independent electoral body suggested delaying the elections for the country's constituent assembly to Oct. 16, the official press agency TAP reported on Sunday.

The initial date for the elections of the constituent assembly was set on July 24, but the head of the independent electoral body, Kamel Jendoubi, said during a press conference on Sunday that it was "unlikely" that the elections would take place on the set date, citing "technical reasons."

Recently, the Tunisian interim government and most of the country's political parties said they supported the idea of keeping the initial date for the elections of the constituent assembly on July 24.
