Sean Plunket is Back 9 30 pm this Friday on Prime

It's one of the BIG election issues and this Fridaynight on Prime, Sean will chair what is certain to be a key election debate.

Social Development Minister Paula Bennett will confront Green Co-Leader Metiria Turei on inequality and poverty in NZ. They will be joined by two experts with very different perspectives, Alan Johnson from the Salvation Army, author of The Growing Divide. A State of the Nation Report from the Salvation Army 2012 . And from the faith based Venn Foundation we have its CEO, Greg Fleming, the former CEO of the Maxim Institute.

This will be the first of a series of weekly debates running right through the election --- and after. We have some of the country's top politicians lined up and with Sean's extensive experience chairing election debate broadcasts, these are going to be must see shows.

And we'll have a different way for you to win a book each week!
You can also catch up with us on Facebook.

And very shortly we'll be going live with a new political news website.


"PRIME TIME WITH SEAN PLUNKET"
