Debate is like a contest where speakers argue with each other for or against a topic of discussion, with an intention to persuade the audience to believe in their motion.  
Like any other competition, debate also adheres to a certain time limit that is given to each team to put forth their case with logic, proof and evidence effectively.  
The time that is allotted to each team to present their case and then to respond to the questions put up by the judges, audience and their opponents is usually stipulated in the rules laid down prior to the debate and generally it does not exceed an hour.
