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.
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"?!?
