(Invitations to candidates to take part in this hustings were issued based on parties receiving the highest five positions in the vote share of the 2012 Bristol Mayor election. This was to allow more in depth answers from candidates with a higher probability of winning and therefore aid a more meaningful democratic process. Other hustings have given all the other candidates a platform. This is in accordance with Electoral Commission guidelines.)
