Key vs Cunliffe – TV3 Leaders Debate

Key vs Cunliffe – TV3 Leaders Debate

John Campbell will moderate an hour-long debate between Leader of the National Party, John Key, and Leader of the Labour Party, David Cunliffe, on Wednesday 10 September at 8.40pm on TV3.

The Leaders Debate is part of Decision ‘14, authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the General Election from TV3’s leading news service.

Producer Keith Slater says that John Campbell is the best in the business in ensuring viewers get to see an insightful and entertaining meeting of our political leaders.

“John will step in to keep things on track, but he wants the leaders to debate real issues with each other rather than responding to series of questions from outside parties. Ten days out from the general election, this debate will be crucial in helping viewers rate the contenders and make their minds up.”

Paul Henry and a panel of experts will then dissect the key points of the debate in The Paul Henry Show.

Both the Leaders Debate and the post-analysis on The Paul Henry Show will be streamed live on 3news.co.nz/decision14.

Viewers can join the discussion on Twitter with @3Politics.
