“It is pretty disreputable that David Cameron went in to the 2010 election saying these debates were the most important thing that we could possibly have, people shouldn’t make feeble excuses to get out of them and he is doing precisely that. He is running scared from these debates,” Miliband said during his interview on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC1.
The British opposition leader stressed that he would take part in the debates regardless of Cameron's decision.
However, the Green’s party's participation is doubtful, since it is unlikely to qualify as a major party, according to UK television regulator Ofcom.
During the interview, Miliband made several important statements, including a promise to freeze prices of fuel bills until 2017.
General elections in the United Kingdom are scheduled for May 2015, when voters will elect representatives to sit in the House of Commons – the country’s lower house of parliament.
Three major rivals in the upcoming elections are the ruling Conservative Party, headed by David Cameron, the Labour Party, and the Liberal Democrats.
