The final five candidates to become our new Prime Minister are to take part in two TV debates this weekend.

Kemi Badenoch, Penny Mordaunt, Rishi Sunak, Liz Truss and Tom Tugendhat will go before the cameras tonight and on Sunday night, before the next round of voting on Monday, and Tuesday.

Then the final three candidates will take part in a third TV debate on Tuesday night.

It’s the first opportunity for them to challenge each other, and defend their ideas in a live setting.

The Evening Standard’s Deputy Political Editor David Bond explains how significant the TV debates will be, the key subjects being discussed, and who may benefit the most from them.
