Attended the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seat by-election nomination early this morning. It was with fanfare from both sides of the political divide.
The seat would witness a three-cornered fight between Barisan Nasional (BN), PAS and an independent candidate.
The BN candidate would be Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh, against PAS' Mohd Abdul
Wahid Endut and an independent Azharudin Mamat @ Adam.
Election for the parliamentary seat had been fixed for Jan 17. The Election Commission revealed that the constituency had 80,229 voters. Indian voters here are less than 800 with Chinese numbering more than 15,000 voters.
The BN as well as Pakatan Rakyat have brought in their heavyweights to campaign for the polls. Let us hope we would have a trouble-free by-election that is free and fair.
