Petition Make TV election debates happen - establish an Independent Debates Commission

Genuine leaders' debates took place in 2010, but in the next two elections didn't happen. Amend election law to make party leaders take part in a televised debate.

More details

An Independent Debates Commission would take decision making out of the politicians and broadcasters' hands and ensure TV debates become a regular fixture of UK elections.
