The Ijok state seat by-election is shaping up to be a proxy battle between two deputy prime ministers - one axed, one current.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has been trading barbs with former colleague Anwar Ibrahim as the campaign for the semi-urban Selangor state seat - about 50km north of Kuala Lumpur - comes to a climax this Saturday.

Even Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has jumped into the fray by urging the 12,000-odd voters to use the ballot box to tell the government that all is not well.

Malaysiakini has all the exclusive news, analyses and videos on this battle royale.
