The event will be organized like a game show and divided into three sections.
First, “stressing party positions”, the eight party representatives will draw a raffle which contained specific question to be answered under a given time on topics ranging from politics, society, charter, corruption and more. The party rep will then get a chance to choose one other party rep to answer the same question.
Second, highlighting the party’s “selling points”. Raffles will be drawn to match a one-on-one debate between two party reps on the topic of the economy, including the controversial issue of minimum wage.
