Default Ilyumzhinov Re-elected!?

Presidents of chess federations and delegates from chess federations
were allowed to speak during the business meeting. However, as Karpov
and Kasparov were neither the president of any chess federation nor
the delegate from any chess federation they were not allowed to speak
except that Karpov was given 15 minutes to speak just before the
voting.

At the beginning of the meeting at 10:00 AM the lawyers were allowed
to speak. They objected to the commecement of the meeting saying that
first the proxie issues had to be decided. However, as the General
Assembly was the ultimate authority to decide the proxie issues it was
obvious that first the meeting had to be convened and those delegates
about whom there was no doubt had to be seated so that they could vote
on the proxie issues.

There was so much shouting and screaming durng this early period with
the lawyers creating a circus atmosphere that finally Kirsan ruled
that the lawyers were not allowed to speak any more. This ruling met
with great approval among the General Assembly and there was a loud
applause.
