Silvio Danailov with statement regarding the upcoming elections

Danailov sees possible political dependance in ECU


Silvio Danailov has released a public statment regarding the upcoming ECU elections in Khanty Mansiysk.

“Now, just days before the final dash, is the right time for us to stop and rethink what has been said and done by the candidates for the Presidential position (for ECU),” says Danailov. “Regretfully, the facts are very disturbing. What I see are two of the candidates becoming victims of political games, tying themselves and the future of European chess with the choice of one or another personality for FIDE President. As to clarify, Mr. Ali Nihat Yazici does not keep his relationship with Mr. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov secret and neither does Mr.Robert von Weizsacker with the other candidate for FIDE Presidency – Mr. Anatoly Karpov. Is this what we want – political equilibrists, puppets on strings, whose decisions and actions will follow third party interests, remaining deaf to the actual needs of the European federations? Is this what we want – the faith of the ECU to be decided not by the European federations, but by FIDE clerks? Apart from being contrary to common sense, an eventual choice of one of the two politically dependent candidates is in full dissonance with the characteristic of the EU geopolitical emancipation – Europe to solve its problems not under the command of, but with the cooperation of the other world factors.”
