Mutiny in FIDE ?
Reflective times ahead for Kirsan
The routine quarterly meeting of the FIDE presidential board (PB) in Athens last weekend seemed to be the usual crap until the last day when controversy struck. Apart from the laughable (see yesterday’s blog article) ‘he said-she said’ uncertainty about Kirsan resigning or not, the only visible result that was achieved seems to be the general consensus that next month an extra-ordinary meeting of the PB will be necessary to ‘discuss the situation’. Even this is far from clear, however, as an injunction might be sought to limit further damage to the organization and prevent chaos and sabotage. In times of crisis, the FIDE constitution allows for the president to take full control.
