President of the United States Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will appear in a live debate with each other on U.S. TV channels on October 3.
Such debates have become a tradition in U.S. politics for almost the past five decades.
Wednesday will be the first day on which Obama and Romney will face each other in a live TV debate.
The debate will give President Obama the opportunity to tell the Americans why he needs an additional four years while Republican presidential candidate Romney will use this golden opportunity to reverse his falling support rates after making comments related to "47 percent of the U.S. population".
In a recent statement made, Mitt Romney had said he did not much care about 47 percent of the U.S. population.
While it would be sufficient for President Obama to complete the debate on an equal term with Romney, Mitt Romney himself needs an excellent performance in order to change the balance of support to Obama and himself on Wednesday.
The topic of Wednesday's debate would be "domestic politics".
Obama and Romney will meet for the second time on October 16 to debate both local and foreign policies.
The two presidential candidates will meet for the third time on October 22 to debate only foreign policies.
U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden and Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan will also hold a live TV debate on October 11.
Wednesday's debate will take place at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado between 9.00 p.m. and 10.30 p.m. (US Eastern Time).
The Commission on Presidential Debates is the sponsor of the debate.
The host of "NewsHour" on PBS, Jim Lehrer will be the moderator at the debate.Güncelleme Tarihi: 02 Ekim 2012, 15:21
