Bareev joins Yazici on ECU ticketEvgeny Bareev goes into chess politics. The Russian grandmaster is mentioned as 'Vice President' on Ali Nihat Yazici's ticket for the upcoming presidential elections of the European Chess Union. The other nominations, now officially received by ECU, are those of Silvio Danailov and Robert von Weizsäcker, who has three GMs on his side.

During the Olympiad in Khanty-Mansiysk, the new President of the European Chess Union (ECU) will be elected. The exact moment of this election has not been decided yet, but it will certainly take place after the elections of the FIDE Presidential ticket. In its montly Circular Letter, sent to all European federations, associated members, board members, FIDE and FIDE Zone Presidents, the European Chess Union yesterday made public the names of the nominations:

Ticket of Silvio Danailov President Silvio Danailov, Bulgaria Deputy President Tomasz Sielicki, Poland Vice President Ion-Serban Dobronauteanu, Romania Secretary General Sava Stoisavljevic, Serbia Treasurer Almog Burstein, Israel

Ticket of Robert von Weizsäcker President Robert von Weizsäcker, Germany Deputy President Nigel Short, England Vice President Ivan Sokolov, Bosnia & Herzegovina Secretary General Johann Hjartarson, Iceland Treasurer Yuri Kaplun, Ukraine

Ticket of Ali Nihat Yazici President Ali Nihat Yazici, Turkey Deputy President Peter Rajcsanyi, Hungary Vice President Evgeny Bareev, Russia Secretary General Geoffrey Borg, Malta Treasurer Joan Antoni Obregon, Andorra

The names of the Danailov and Von Weizsäcker tickets were already known. The most interesting name on the Yazici ticket is that of Russian grandmaster Evgeny Bareev, who follows the example of Short, Sokolov and Hjartarson. And there's another familiar name: that of FIDE Commercial Director Geoffrey Borg, who was responsible for the FIDE Grand Prix Series.
