AN ELECTION candidate will tackle economic issues in a radio debate on Wednesday.
Aleks Lukic, standing for UKIP in Batley and Spen, is to take part in the BBC Radio Leeds show at Morley Town Hall.
Chaired by presenter Andrew Edwards, it will go out at 11am and will be available on iPlayer afterwards.
The Question Time-style event is set to be recorded the previous night in front of a live audience.
Aleks, 25, said: “Other parties often argue that leaving the European Union would harm Britain’s prospects.
“We in UKIP are clear that we want Britain to forge partnerships with Commonwealth nations and the wider world.
“We can’t enjoy the boost this would bring to jobs and the economy while we are tied down to Europe.”
The teacher, of Staincliffe, is also set to face other candidates standing in Batley and Spen.
A debate is due to take place at the Indian Muslim Welfare Society on Sunday, April 19.
For the BBC event, tickets are available by calling 0345 303 3333 or emailing radioleeds@ bbc.co.uk.
