Two-Party System

David McCullagh and Miriam O’Callaghan of RTÉ’s Prime Time

This morning.

RTÉ announced that it will broadcast two live television debates as part of its general election coverage. The dates have yet to be announced.

The Claire Byrne Live Leaders’ Debate will involve “leaders from a number of political parties” to debate in front of a live audience.

Secondly, in “the final days of the campaign”, Prime Time will hold a leaders’ debate which will involve “the party leaders from the two largest political parties” taking part in “a live head-to-head studio debate”.

Morning Ireland broadcaster, and former Six One presenter, Bryan Dobson will also hold a series of interviews with party leaders at 7pm on RTÉ One throughout the campaign.

Meanwhile…

On Virgin Media One…

    Odd that the brother of one of the presenters is a candidate. Surely conflict of interest with Jim O’Callaghan?
