The Peoples Forum with Julia Gillard - LIVE from Melbourne

SKY NEWS in conjunction with the Herald Sun will host the second Peoples Forum of this election year with Prime Minister Julia Gillard next Monday (April 22). The forum will be held at the Burvale Hotel, in Nunawading, in the federal seat of Deakin. Ms Gillard will take questions on education from 100 undecided voters recruited by Galaxy Research. SKY NEWS Political Editor David Speers will moderate the one-hour event to be broadcast live on SKY NEWS National, channel 601. David said: The school funding reforms are the Prime Ministers last chance to turn things around for the Government. It will be fascinating to see if Julia Gillard can convince voters to keep her in office to see these reforms put in place. News Limiteds Victorian managing director editorial, Peter Blunden, welcomed the Prime Ministers decision to front Victorian voters, following the forum with Opposition Leader Tony Abbott held this evening in Geelong. Education is a critical issue for all Victorian families and with the spotlight firmly on education funding, this is a timely opportunity for undecided voters to question the Prime Minister directly, he said. Coverage on SKY NEWS will begin at 4pm on Monday with a special edition of PM Agenda LIVE from the venue. David will be joined by the Herald Suns National Political Editor, Phil Hudson, Columnist Susie OBrien, and News Limiteds Economics Editor, Jessica Irvine, to discuss key local and education issues ahead of the forum. The Forum itself will begin at 5.30pm. Comprehensive coverage of the event will be published across all platforms of the Herald Sun and www.skynews.com.au This forum is the second in a series of events to come during the 2013 Election campaign.

THE PEOPLES FORUM will air on SKY NEWS National at 5.30pm on April 22, channel 601 only on Foxtel.
PM AGENDA with David Speers airs weekdays at 4pm on SKY NEWS National
