Ali Nihat Yazici re-elected TCF President

The Turkish Chess Federation General Congress and Elections ended in a landmark victory for the incumbent president Ali Nihat Yazici, who faced very strong opposition led by Veli Ozan Çakir. The hot debates in Turkish chess circles on Yazici’s past achievements with the criticisms of its consequences by the opposition, including the first (and only) grandmaster of the country, Suat Atalik, ended last Saturday with a victory by Ali Nihat Yazici. The final count was 90 votes against 70. Yazici will lead Turkish Chess for four more years.

The Turkish Chess Federation General Congress and Elections were held in the Crowne Plaza Hotel on November 8th in Ankara. The new President, Board, Auditory Board and Disciplinary Committee were elected.
