Guinean coup junta said elections are planned to be held within two years, agencies' reports said on Wednesday.
The coup planners said in a statement read on state radio, "the National Council for Democracy and Development committed to organize credible and transparent elections for the end of December 2010."
The coup occurred after radio broadcast from the Guinean capital of Conakry on Tuesday said President Lansana Conte has died after long illness.
The self-claimed council led by Capt. Moussa Camara was reported to hold talks with loyalist forces at its stronghold Alpha Yaya Diallo barracks.
Camara announced the dissolving of the government and the constitution on radio, saying a consultative body of civilian and military members will soon be created.
The coup was broadcast hours after National Assembly President Aboubacar Sompare announced the death of Conte.
Under the constitution, Sompare, in the capacity of head of parliament, is to temporarily take over state affairs while organizing a presidential election within 60 days.
Guinean Prime Minister Ahmed Tidiane Souare denied his government was dissolved on Tuesday. He told Radio France Internationale that he was still in office "working on the organization of the funeral."
On the same day, army general staff Diarra Camara called on the military to keep calm and show restraint.
Camara accompanied Souare and Sompare when Sompare announced the death of Conte in the early hours of Tuesday.
"I appeal to them to remain calm and loyal," Camara said in a communique, urging grievances be shelved until a state funeral is given to Conte who ruled the country for 24 years.
