BBC Radio Leeds will get back in touch to explain how you can be part of the debate.

Following the last general election in 2010 a coalition government was formed with David Cameron (Conservative) as prime minister and Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrat) as deputy prime minister.

It is the first time Britain has had a coalition government in 70 years and the first time these two parties have ever agreed to a power sharing deal at a national level in the UK.

The Conservatives fell 20 short of the 326 MPs needed for a majority.

In total there are five Liberal Democrats in a cabinet of 23 members.
