The Daily Blog is pleased to announce the “Kiwi Fair Go Debate” – the first major broadcast political debate open to every registered political party standing in the 2017 New Zealand general election.

The Daily Blog is pleased to announce the “Kiwi Fair Go Debate” – the first major broadcast political debate open to every registered political party standing in the 2017 New Zealand general election.

Host Martyn ‘Bomber’ Bradbury said: “Television media in New Zealand have claimed that it is impossible to showcase all 16 parties simultaneously. The Kiwi Fair Go Debate is using web conference technology to prove that in fact, it is both simple and cost-effective to do so!”

The event will be streamed online, simulcast on You Tube, Facebook and at The Daily Blog.

The event will be held on Monday 18 September from 8pm – 10.00pm. Find out more at the event website: https://kiwidebate.online

The event will be live-tweeted on the account @KiwiDebate. The event hashtag will be #KiwiFairGo

    Do we and they get to see ‘ the same, neutrally-phrased questions’ ahead of the debate?

    After the election will there still be a forum for these hopeful parties to stay in front of citizens in a broader way than dedicated websites? To actually have a fair shot at hitting the five percent threshold?

    Will there be any differences made for the single issue parties compared with the more nuanced parties that are set up to cover most portfolios?

    For the cash-strapped and smaller parties – will there be any help to ‘webify’ their material? Or is this to be a learning curve?

    It’s a good idea. I like it. I hope there’s a replay planned and I hope the idea doesn’t fade away after. We fringe people aren’t that keen on the 5%ers currently on offer so an alternative parliament could be both fun and useful. A chance to try out co-operative politics, perhaps?

    Very good.
