New Delhi: D.V. Sundar, secretary of the All India Chess Federation, was on Thursday elected the vice-president of FIDE in Russia.
Meanwhile, R.M. Dongre was elected Asia Zone president and Bharat Singh Chauhan the Commonwealth Chess Federation president, according to an All India Chess Federation release.
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov defeated Anatoly Karpov 95-55 to continue as FIDE president, the release added.
Karpov, who lost on Wednesday, has said he is unlikely to accept the post of vice-president.
“My future cooperation with FIDE is unlikely...I realised that I was to load myself with hard burden, but I was ready to bear it. Now it will be easier for me because I am a busy man and have other projects in other fields,” said Karpov as quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency. — Agencies
