TUNIS - Tunisia's election will be held on October 24, a delay of a further week to ensure it can be "free and transparent", Prime Minister Beji Caid Sebsi said on Wednesday.

The timing of the vote for an assembly to rewrite the country's constitution has been highly sensitive.

Large opposition parties have demanded an early poll, saying they fear the government may renege on its promise to lead Tunisia towards democracy after the overthrow of former president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali this year.
