Election debate format under discussion

February 9, 2010

It was a last year that televised live election debates were first spoken about and gradually the parties agreed that these would be a great idea.

But since the New Year and the prospect of an April or May general election, the debates have become more of a reality and, according to the Guardian, the format is being negotiated to death as the party managers try to get the best terms for their man.

There will be three ninety-minute long debates, one each on BBC, ITV and Sky.

But it seems there are worries about airtime, camera shots and more importantly if members of the audience are allowed to ask questions.

The debates have the potential to make TV history and change the way elections are fought in the future.
