The complete speaker schedule for the Democratic national convention – where Joe Biden will officially accept the party’s presidential – has been revealed.

Bernie Sanders will speak on Monday, ahead of the Republican former Ohio governor John Kasich and Michelle Obama. On Tuesday the highlights include Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bill Clinton, while Hillary Clinton and “vice presidential nominee” take to the stage on Wednesday.

Kamala Harris, like other frontrunners to be vice-president, has been given a separate speaking slot, but the understanding is this does not mean Harris, or others, will not be VP.

The full line-up:

Monday

Bernie Sanders, Sen Catherine Cortez Masto, Gov Andrew Cuomo, Gov Gretchen Whitmer, Rep Jim Clyburn, Convention chairman Rep Bennie Thompson, Rep Gwen Moore, former Gov John Kasich, Sen Doug Jones, Sen Amy Klobuchar and Michelle Obama.

Tuesday

Former acting US Attorney General Sally Yates, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, former Secretary of State John Kerry, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, former President Bill Clinton and Jill Biden.

Wednesday

Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Sen Elizabeth Warren, Gov Tony Evers, Gov Michelle Lujan Grisham, former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the vice presidential nominee and Barack Obama.

Thursday

Cory Booker, Gov Gavin Newsom, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Pete Buttigieg, Sen Tammy Baldwin, Sen Tammy Duckworth, Sen Chris Coons, Sen Kamala Harris, the Biden Family, and Joe Biden.
