TVNZ and YouTube to deliver election debate

TVNZ and YouTube have come together to allow voters to put questions to New Zealand's political leaders ahead of the election. The ONE News YouTube Election Debate will be televised live, featuring questions posted as video submissions on YouTube.

TVNZ's Mark Sainsbury will moderate the 90-minute debate, with three leading political journalists asking additional questions.

Starting today, YouTube users can submit their questions at www.youtube.co.nz/debate. Users will then vote for their favourite questions to determine which ones will be put to the politicians in the debate itself.

TVNZ's chief executive, Rick Ellis, says the joint initiative is a new opportunity for New Zealanders to get their issues and concerns heard at the highest level.

This is the first time a head of a national government and the challenger will appear in an official live televised debate, featuring video questions asked directly by people using YouTube.
