A vote by Tunisian lawmakers to adopt the country's new constitution has been delayed for a day until Sunday, said Karima Souid, information officer at the constituent assembly.

The plenary session was set for 9:00 am (1000 GMT) on Sunday, Souid, who is also an MP, told Agence France Presse.

The adoption of the constitution would mark a key step in the country's political transition following the 2011 overthrow of long-ruling dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, which ignited the Arab Spring.
