With less than four weeks to go before polls open on 22-25 May, the parties' main candidates for the EU Commission presidency face each other in a series of 'Presidential Debates', broadcasted by national and European media.

The main candidates, or 'Spitzenkandidaten', are put forward by their parties as official candidates to lead the EU executive. They will battle it out over their vision for the EU, discussing raging unemployment, energy, economy and all the big challenges facing europe today.

Seven debates in total are planned. Four of these will feature at least four candidates, who represent mainstream parties. The two main contenders in the race, the socialist Martin Schulz, and centre-right Jean-Claude Juncker, will also engage in three 'face-off' debates.
