Come Saturday, the fate of 3 candidates for Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election will be known.
Focus is, of course, centered on BN's Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid and Haji Wahid Endut of Pas. Independent's Azharudin Mamat should be a write-off.
The result which is expected to be announced by 8.30 pm Saturday will depend much on the decision by more than 80,000 voters in the constituency. Should it be neck-to-neck, recounting is unavoidable.
However, after almost 2 weeks in Kuala Terengganu, I would like to forecast the outcome by borrowing a Malay proverb - "Yang Memang Jadi Arang, Yang Kalah Jadi Abu".
