Friday July 11, 2014

 Dear Garry Kasparov,

Re: Endorsement for Team Kasparov

I have much pleasure in informing you that Fiji Chess Federation (FCF) will support you and your Ticket in the upcoming FIDE Elections in Tromso, Norway.

Team Kasparov’s energetic campaign and solid platform has caused FCF to stand up and take notice, and make informed choices regarding our future.  We feel the enthusiasm and attitude shown by Team Kasparov will result in positive global expansion for Chess.

FCF is satisfied your manifesto and stellar team is the way forward for FIDE.  We are also confident of Mr. Ignatius Leong’s stewardship in the Asia-Pacific region.  He has been a friend to FCF for many years.

I have widely consulted the Fiji Chess community, and have received overwhelming feedback on your campaign.  The FCF Executive Committee has resolved to endorse you.

The strong support from our colleagues in the Oceania region towards your campaign is notable.  This is indicative of Oceania’s appreciation and agreement in your vision.

It is atypical of Fiji to make an endorsement in this manner regarding FIDE Elections.  However, we must put all speculation to rest, and now focus on the 41st Chess Olympiad.

I wish Team Kasparov all the best in Tromso.

Acting-President / FIDE Delegate, Fiji Chess Federation
