US House calls off vote on Libya resolution

June 1, 2011 21:13

WASHINGTON, June 1 (Reuters) - 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 information from the president.

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

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