February 18, 1987|United Press International

WASHINGTON — The Republican and Democratic national chairmen, muscling out the League of Women Voters, announced today that their parties will run the debates between the presidential candidates in the 1988 elections.

Democratic leader Paul Kirk and GOP chief Frank Fahrenkopf named a 10-member bipartisan commission that will conduct the debates next year and in the future. They said the parties will not hold debates during the primaries. The League of Women Voters has been conducting the debates since 1976 and plans to continue next year, in the primaries and the general election.
