The Jan 17 by-election in Kuala Terengganu is crucial for both Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat.
The government is hoping to show it has clawed back support with promises of reform and leadership changes after losing five states and a third of parliamentary seats in the March 2008 general election.
For the opposition alliance, it is a chance to regain the momentum after it was stalled when it failed to meet a self-imposed September 2008 deadline to unseat the BN government
More important, the by-election is the first major test for prime minister-in-waiting Najib Abdul Razak, who is due to take over the top job in March.
The Malaysiakini team is in Kuala Terengganu to provide the news, views and videos that matter.
