Lessons on rigging the deck

First, read Peter Long's article today.

I can confirm that a part of Peter's accusations at MCF is true.

The MCF President and his men are trying to keep those affiliates who are known to be "unfriendly" away from the coming elections and according to Peter, one of the tactics will be to suspend these affiliates thereby preventing them from voting at the coming AGM.

I know at least one affiliate which is eager to pay up whatever is outstanding. The MCF President and Secretary thwarts this by just refusing to issue any invoice. Attempts to contact them are just ignored.

At the last election in 2013, the President and his entire committee were allowed to vote. This is unprecedented and unheard off. The normal practice is for all MCF council and committee to be discharged from their positions at the start of election process. They thus have no further roles to play in the proceedings unless they are also the official delegate for an affiliate.

The votes from the President's men helped to beat off his challenger at that AGM. The big mistake by the challenger and his supporters were to allow this illegal voting to happen. They should have just walked out even though it meant the incumbent would retain his presidency. That way they could have challenged the election process in court.

It is a fact that the majority of the committee will support the incumbent as they either owe their positions to him or stand to benefit from their positions and wants to continue in office. This explains why the recent appointments and  shuffling in positions. It is merely to beef up their vote bank. If you are appointed to your position by the President it is likely that you will want to see that same President in place for the next two years, so you will vote accordingly.

Everything I write about in a newspaper is 100 percent true and when based on information I have no direct access to it is also fact checked with many different sources. I even welcome legal action for what I more bluntly say in my blog but so far I have been denied the opportunity to force disclosure of facts that I might not even know about in court! The actions of this MCF smell of desperation... you have now educated everyone on what I understood well - the incumbent council is disbanded cannot vote in an election and that should be well established before by any challenger and the same action also applies to these pathetic attempt to prevent some state affiliates from voting.

Sadly while Peter Wrong may at times be bluntly right, his involvement with Ignatius at the Kasparov Chess Foundation (alleged to be involved in vote buying) means Peter has no moral platform from which to speak.

Case of pots, pans, kettles - all with black bottoms.

Show your bottom, Peter, then talk of others.

I think CM Fadli has done a fantastic job in organizing various tournaments and activities for the benefit of the chess community namely through his Cerdik Catur Enterprise set up. He is definitely a worthwhile candidate to be nominated as the President. Looking forward to a change in MCF leadership soon !!
