The Republican Party of the United States wants to break with the committee that organizes debates between presidential candidates. The New York Times reported Thursday that Republican nominees for the presidency should be assured that they will not run in the presidential debate.

The party informed the committee in a letter of the planned boycott. The newspaper said that this could have major consequences for the way debates are organized before the presidential election.

Republicans and Democrats established the Debate Committee in 1987 as an impartial body. But Republicans have been at odds with the group on various issues for years. For example, former President Donald Trump thought debate leaders were biased.

The Republicans will have to decide at a meeting in February whether the split will actually end. It is not yet clear what such a conclusion means for future discussions. Before the commission existed, political parties had to directly negotiate the rules for candidates to enter public debates.
