Election for FIDE Presidency
I recently received a number of emails from Vasil Munteanu (of Romania) regarding the upcoming FIDE election. There are numerous articles about various issues posted on the site www.FIDENot4Sale.blogspot.com.
As in past practice, I try not to get involved in chess politics. I also do not pick sides. I only care about helping chess grow the right way, especially chess in education and women's chess. I have turned down many times in the past to join any ticket. I always try to be fair to both sides by letting their voices be heard.
Garry Kasparov has plenty of information and rebuttal on his own site www.Kasparov2014.com. It is up to you to make your own decision as to who is the best candidate, and what their track records / qualifications are.
