WF Election Debate 2009 ReportIn: General
Despite the fact that answers from candidates were predictably cut from the same cloth, they managed to differentiate themselves well when forced to get off the fence during questions from the audience and ones that had been submitted previously online. Throughout the event there were also live SMS polls which gave those watching online around the world a chance to have their voices heard, the results can be seen on www.wfelection2009.com
On Saturday during the debate, at any one time, between 5pm and 8pm there were 250 visitors watching the stream online, and since the debate there have been 100 unique visitors on the website daily and over 50 comments in the discussion boards. DVDs of the event have also been sent out to Karachi and Mombasa where they will hopefully be shown to the respective jamaats.
