Sky News calls for Leaders’ Debate Commission

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
