Election debate to include Greens

Updated: 05:28, Friday August 6, 2010

Election campaign debates, traditionally a two-way affair with Labor taking on the Liberals, are set to widen, with the Greens scheduled to take part in a pre-election discussion.

The forum will be about plans for an internet filter and is due to be held at Canberra’s National Press Club on Tuesday, with Greens’ senator Scott Ludlam joining his opposite numbers from the two major parties.

Labor has also agreed to a three-way debate on climate change, planned to feature Climate Change Minister Penny Wong, Greens’ spokeswoman Christine Milne and Liberals’ spokesman Greg Hunt.

But the climate debate will only go ahead if the Liberals agree to it.
