WASHINGTON - The US House of Representatives on Wednesday called off a vote on a proposal directing President Barack Obama to remove US armed forces from Libya, with majority Republicans saying they wanted more time to weigh their options on the war.

Democrat Dennis Kucinich, the resolution's disappointed sponsor, suggested the vote was dropped because the measure might have passed, which would have confirmed that most of the lawmakers want the United States out of the Libyan conflict.

"Some are now wondering if a preliminary vote count on my resolution came out in favor," Kucinich said in a statement.
