Jill Stein Demands Open Debates in the U.S. Election
Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for president in the U.S. election, has launched a campaign in support of open debates.
She is asking voters to sign a pledge of nonviolent civil disobedience in support of open debates and resist the theft of democracy in the United States.
An online platform for taking the pledge suggests that the presidential debates must include all candidates who are on the ballot in enough states to have the ability to win the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
According to Jill Stein, the Democratic and Republican parties should not be able to restrict who participates in the debates through a so-called commission that they created and run.
The second and third presidential debates are being organized on October 9 and October 19 respectively. The date for the vice presidential debate between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence is October 4.
Meanwhile, in an ongoing poll on RMN News Service, when people were asked “Who should be the next President of America?”, a whopping 44% voters said they do not want Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the White House. Only 32% voted for Clinton and 24% for Trump. You can also vote in the “Your Voice” section of the site.
