They will also have one debate between them.

All parties are being given a number of TV spots too.

Arnold Cassola said he has been given the chance to debate with other independent candidates.

Arnold Cassola is then given 5 minutes to speak on his own, but has not been given any TV spots at all.

Commenting about the Broadcasting Authority schedule, Arnold Cassola stated "The Broadcasting Authority continues to show that it has zero credibility in ensuring a truly pluralistic public broadcasting process which is fair to all. Despite this, I pledge to continue my campaign in favour of a more sustainable and just society and I thank all the thousands of persons who are responding positively to this message".
