Young gun takes on assistant treasurer
Tuesday, 17th August, 2010
The 'Farrer Debate' is on this morning.
The Liberal Member for Farrer, Sussan Ley, will debate young ALP candidate Christian Emmery live on ABC Radio this morning.
Mr Emmery challenged Ms Ley to a debate to give voters a chance to "hear the stark contrast between the economic policies of Labor and Liberal".
Ms Ley, who is the Shadow Treasurer, is defending a safe Liberal seat from seven other candidates this election. Mr Emmery is 20 years old and is making his first foray into politics.
The debate can be heard from 8.35am on the local AM station. It is expected to run for about 30 minutes.
The ABC's Joseph Thompson will moderate the debate from his Albury studio, asking each candidate questions selected from voters across the vast electorate.
