It’s decision day for nearly 23,000 voters in the Slim state seat where there is a three-cornered fight between Barisan Nasional candidate Mohd Zaidi Aziz and independents Amir Khusyairi Mohamad Tanusi and S. Santharasekaran.

The by-election was called following the death of its four-term assemblyman Datuk Mohd Khusairi Abdul Talib, of Barisan Nasional, from a heart attack on July 15.
