Tasmanian Election: SKY News / Mercury People’s Forum

Tas. Premier Peter Gutwein & Opposition Leader Rebecca White will take questions from voters 5 days out from state election.

SKY News and the Mercury will host a People’s Forum in Hobart with Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein and Opposition Leader Rebecca White, taking questions from voters five days out from the state election.

Kieran Gilbert, Chief News Anchor said: “Premier Peter Gutwein caught many by surprise when he called Tasmania’s Election a year early, and this Forum will be our best insight into whether voters are set to reward or reject his high-stakes roll of the dice.”

Paul Whittaker, Chief Executive Officer said: “People’s Forums are always a campaign highlight – bringing both Leaders together in a face-to-face setting where they are held directly accountable by voters. The SKY News/ Mercury People’s Forum will shape the final week of the Tasmanian election campaign as both Peter Gutwein and Rebecca White make their final pitches directly to the people ahead of polling day.”

Jenna Cairney, Editor, Mercury said: “In terms of controversies, to date this campaign has been one of the most drama-filled elections in Tasmania’s history. But enough with the smears and the tears, Tasmanians need to hear precisely what these leaders have to offer our state.”

At 2pm AEST join Political Reporter Tom Connell for pre-forum analysis as he anchors Afternoon Agenda, crossing to Kieran Gilbert live from the forum venue. Gutwein and White will then face the group of voters live for questioning from 4pm AEST.
