Come Sunday, Morrison, Albanese to debate on Channel 9

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition leader Anthony Albanese will meet in a leaders’ debate on Sunday, May 8, less than two weeks before Australians go to the polls on May 21.
The hour-long debate will be moderated by Sarah Abo, and feature a panel consisting of Nine’s Political Editor Chris Uhlmann accompanied by David Crowe, Chief Political Correspondent for The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Deb Knight, host of the afternoon program on Radio 2GB.
The debate will be shown on Channel 9 and live-streamed on 9Now.
There will be a series of polls and questions to viewers alongside. People would be asked about what they think about the debate, the issues raised and, of course, the leaders themselves.
Those answers will then form part of the panel’s discussion post-debate.
“In less than three weeks, 17 million Australians will head to the polls to determine who will govern the nation for the next three years,” said Darren Wick, Director of News and Current Affairs for Nine.
With inflation at its highest rate in more than 20 years, house prices spiralling to unattainable levels and interest rates set for successive hikes, this will be one of the most important elections in recent times.
“Coupled with climate change, global insecurity, stagnant wage growth and aged care, both leaders have their work cut out for them to sell their respective policies. We can’t wait to see how this debate will unfold,” Wick said.
