Federations cannot be excluded from elections due to debts


FIDE has received a letter from the President of Russian Chess Federation and FIDE Vice President, Andrey Filatov, who steps into the false assumption that each federation debt "must be covered before July 23 - or the respective federation won't be allowed to participate in FIDE Olympiad and FIDE President elections in Batumi".

FIDE Treasurer, Prof. Dr. Adrian Siegel explains in his answer that no federation can be excluded from the General Assembly and the election due to debts towards FIDE. Moreover he states addressed to RCF that "such an intention is against our Statutes and Regulations and I would personally fight against such a request".
