    At first glance, Makro's team is looking difficult to beat if those supporters are real.

    I am surprised that anyone other than the official organisation can setup a website that appears from the title to be linked to the official website of FIDE.

    I don't think there's anything in domain registration law to stop him; I think .com is pretty much first-in-first served. Whether FIDE might take any action I'm not sure. It might be prudent for FIDE to sign up such domains itself for future election years to prevent this sort of thing.

    Emil Sutovsky - "ACP Board has unanimously voted to support the candidacy of Arkady Dvorkovich for the FIDE Presidential election. All the Board members : East and West, Grandmasters and organizers feel it is a critical moment for the future of chess - and for the first time ever ACP Board has decided to support any candidate in any elections."

    The Guardian covers the election:

    Ali Nihat Yazici (who is obviously in the Makro camp) is not happy about this article and has had a go at it on Twitter:
