KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 (Bernama) — The Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election will be announced on Saturday.

This was confirmed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a news conference afterwitnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Felda and Fama on the Edible Garden project at Dewan Perdana Felda here Wednesday.

Nomination for the by-election is on Jan 6 and polling on Jan 17, in the event of a contest.

The seat fell vacant following the death of incumbent, Datuk Razali Ismail, who was deputy education minister, believed to be from a heart attack while playing badminton at Institut Aminuddin Baki in Genting Highlands on Nov 28.

Razali retained the seat by beating PAS vice-president Mohamad Sabu and an independent candidate, Maimun Yusof, with a 628-vote majority.
