Kirsan Ilyumzhinov re-elected as FIDE President (Voting)

FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumznhinov was re-elected as FIDE President on the first day of the 81st FIDE Congress by a margin of 95 votes to 55 votes. He was challenged by former World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov who was supported by former champion Garry Kasparov. The voting on the final day was delayed by 4 hours when Garry Kasparov complained about the voting procedures. Later on Kasparov appeared to concede they had no chance of winning. As an organisation FIDE and its delegates seems quite separated from most of the rest of the chess world where Ilyumzhinov is regarded, at best, as a joke. The Karpov campaign site says he will fight on to "continue this battle to restore and transform the chess world."
