Tripoli, May 21 - The UN High Commissioner at Libya's electoral committee Tuesday denied that the date for the new parliament vote has been set.

Earlier reports said that the date for Libya's House of Representatives election has been set June 25.

But UN High Commissioner Abdul Hakim denied that related reports were true, as the final date would be announced later.

There are four proposed dates to the parliament to hold the election, including June 25, but there is no agreement on that date or any other date, Xinhua quoted Hakim as saying.

According to the political transition plan, Libyans will elect a House of Representatives later this year to substitute the current interim parliament, the General National Congress (GNC).
