Sky News is calling for an independent commission to organise televised debates at future general elections.
The campaign is aimed at taking the decision-making process out of the hands of political parties and ensuring debates become a permanent fixture in election campaigns.
Under the Sky News proposals, a Leaders’ Debate Commission (LDC) would:
– Set the format and rules of the debates
– Handle moderation
– Outline the criteria for political party participation
– Ensure the objectivity of audiences
– Steer negotiations between broadcasters and parties
