Greece’s political party leaders will engage in a televised debate on September 9

The Greek public will witness the country’s political leaders confront each other on camera less than two weeks before the September 20 elections.

Greece’s political party leaders will engage in a televised debate on September 9. Golden Dawn President Nikos Michaloliakos will not be part of the debate.

Reports had previously surfaced that the debate would take place on September 10 but an intra-party committee decided to hold the debate a day earlier. A new committee meeting that will prescribe the conditions and rules of the debate will take place on midday Saturday.

A second debate between former Greek Prime Minister and SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and New Democracy leader Evangelos Meimarakis is expected to take place on September 14. An intra-party committee meeting on this matter will be held Monday.
