TUNIS - Tunisian Prime Minister Beji Caid Sebsi raised the possibility on Sunday of a delay to an election scheduled for July, saying it could be held later for technical reasons if need be.

Tunisia is due to hold the election on July 24 for an assembly to draw up a new constitution after former President Zine Abidine Ben Ali was ousted in January in a revolution which inspired uprisings across the Arab world.

Sebsi said in an interview broadcast on state television that Tunisia was still working toward the election date as planned.
