I consider it a real privilege to be moderating two candidates debates this coming Thursday ahead of the General Election on the 23rd of the month. You can be assured that I will be putting my own beliefs and opinions aside to perform this duty for our democracy to the best of my ability.
The debates are live from 7am-9am on Plains FM 96.9 (www.plainsfm.org.nz) and the video feed will be simulcast live on CTV at www.star.kiwi.
At 7am: The minor parties/independent candidates’ debate for the Ilam, Port Hills and Christchurch Central electorates features Raf Manji (Independent), Eugenie Sage (Green), Denis O’Rourke (NZ First), Doug Hill (TOP)
At 8am: The Labour and National Candidates for Port Hills, Ruth Dyson & Nuk Korako, and Christchurch Central, Duncan Webb & Nicky Wagner are going head to head.
This is your city, your country and your decision – if you have questions you would like asked of the candidates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org now.
