What is your source for this?

This is very disturbing and a violation of FIDE Rules but we need to
have it confirmed.

I believe the General Assembly chose to defer the matter of the election
of the Continental offices to the Continents, effectively circumventing
the rule that requires a nominee's home federation to approve of the
nomination. Beatriz obviously had the votes at the Americas Continent
meeting.

My understanding is that Beatriz has already repaid the USCF for the
plane ticket and other expenses related to the FIDE Congress that had
been previously paid to her, in compliance with the Board motion from
last month.

And my understanding is that part of the price for her selling out
the United States was to rid Chess Life of FIDE's greatest critic.

So Beatriz got her payoff from Kirsan. It doesn't always take the
form of a gold Rolex or cash in a brown envelope.

MIKE NOLAN AT USCF FORUM

Tue Jun 13, 2006 3:39 pm

According to the report on the election and the new FIDE Board on the
FIDE website, Beatriz is (still) the General Secretary for the Americas
Continent and Bill Kelleher is now a FIDE Vice-President. The USCF
Executive Board will have to appoint a new FIDE Delegate, but there's
probably no hurry on that.

I believe the way the General Secretary issue was handled by the
General Assembly was to defer the entire issue to the Continents, which
circumvented the rules requiring that the nominee's home federation
must approve of the nomination.

But it has long been true that rules for FIDE are largely a matter of
what the people in power want to do and Torino was a tour de force
demonstration of that.

BEATCHESS FEDERATION

The position that Beatriz got from FIDE is largely ceremonial
and meaningless.

Word from Turin is she didn't get the post she really wanted.
