SKY News and The Courier-Mail will host the People’s Forum next week three days out from the Queensland Election.
Chief News Anchor Kieran Gilbert will host a one-hour People’s Forum with Annastacia Palaszczuk and Deb Frecklington taking questions from undecided voters.
Kieran Gilbert said: “The People’s Forum approach is the best for a leaders’ debate because it’s real voters face-to-face with the contenders. Sky News has established this forum as a key element of both state and federal election campaigns and a crucial chance for leaders to make their final pitch to voters.”
Paul Whittaker, SKY News Australia CEO said: “The stakes are high for the upcoming Queensland Election, with the winner securing the state’s first fixed four-year term. The SKY News / The Courier-Mail People’s Forum is the only opportunity for Queenslanders to see the leaders go head-to-head and answer questions from undecided voters about their vision for the Sunshine State’s future.”
At 3:00pm AEST/4:00pm AEDT join Political Reporter Tom Connell for pre-forum analysis as he anchors Afternoon Agenda with Kieran Gilbert live from the forum venue.
Palaszczuk and Frecklington will then face the group of undecided voters live for questioning from 4:00pm AEST/ 5:00pm AEDT.
The result of the audience votes and who won the debate will be announced when Kieran Gilbert joins Peta Credlin during Credlin at 5:00pm AEST/6:00pm AEDT.
4:00pm AEST / 5:00pm AEDT Wednesday 28 October on SKY News.
