REPLAY: Watch Mundingburra candidates debate

 

The Mundingburra Sky News debate will go ahead without one candidate who was badly injured in a motorcycle crash.

They will also make a 30 second final pitch.

The debate is held in conjunction with this website, which is hosting a number of similar events in the lead up to polling day.
