The electoral debate will take place on June 27 in Atlanta and will be presented by journalists from the aforementioned network Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

No pre-written notes during the 90 minutes

The 90-minute debate will include two commercial breaks, CNN detailed this Saturday, and campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidate during that time. Both also agreed to appear on identical podiums and that their positions on these will be determined by tossing a coin.

Among the parameters accepted by the Biden and Trump campaigns, it is established that the microphones will be turned off throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak.

Contestants will also not be allowed to have accessories or previously written notes on stage. They will only receive a pen, a notebook and a bottle of water.

Like in the past, moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce time and ensure a civil discussion,” indicated the chain.

Seeing each other’s faces on TV, a tradition of electoral cycles in the US

To meet CNN’s debate requirements, candidates must be eligible to be president under the Constitution and have submitted a formal declaration of candidacy to the Federal Election Commission, which candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West and Jill Stein.

All contestants must appear on a sufficient number of state ballots to reach the 270 electoral vote threshold to win the presidency and receive at least 15% support in four national polls, which means that only Biden and Trump can participate and that, for the moment, Kennedy, the third most popular presidential candidate, does not comply.

Last April, the five largest television networks in the United States prepared a joint letter to ask Biden and Trump to participate in televised debates, amid speculation that this election year an agreement would not be reached to hold these traditional face-to-face debates. , for decades organized by the Presidential Debates Commission and not by the networks directly, like this year.

Organizing a presidential debate in June, before the conventions in which both parties make their candidacies official, is not common. But this primary campaign has already cleared the way for Trump and Biden since the spring.

ABC will host the second and final presidential debate in September. Televised presidential debates have been part of American tradition in every election cycle since 1976.
