Dvorkovich Landslide Predicted!
This Saturday presidential candidate Arkady Dvorkovich is expected to have extended his winning support in the 2018 FIDE elections to (50% + 1) plus 10 votes!
Why is Dvorkovich winning?
Fundamentals, engagement and an appeal for change of the status quo is winning over the undecided voters, which is the decisive segment in the 2018 FIDE elections.
The other candidates are falling behind
In the meantime, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s longtime crony Georgios Makropoulos has seen his support drop to the 50% levels he had previously written was ‘guaranteed’. Panic has set in as his social media accounts turn into a brothel of lies and distortions. British candidate Nigel Short is still struggling to get 20 votes.
Both candidates have ignored the undecided voters, which became HUGE when Kirsan was put under US sanctions. Instead, both Makro and Short have played exclusively to their ‘perceived’ base of supporters, which is infact diminishing everyday.
