Afghan challenger threatens to quit run-off unless demands are met

Abdullah Abdullah was poised on Saturday to quit Afghanistan's run-off presidential election unless incumbent Hamid Karzai has a last minute change of heart and bows to a series of demands from his rival.

Officials in Abdullah's campaign team said the former foreign minister would announce he was pulling out of the November 7 contest on Sunday in the absence of any U-turn by Karzai on measures to combat fraud.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Abdullah Abdullah does pull out of the race, because he knows that the entire process will be more crooked than a dog's hind leg, then what?

A one-candidate election?

Or will Karzai just call the whole thing off, and proceed just as he has since the last since the last alleged "election"?!?
