    Tickets are up:

    http://www.fide.com/component/conten...ions-2018.html

    The Makropoulos ticket is nominated by an impressive 64 Federations, which is enough to virtually guarantee that it gets through the first round, assuming it does not actually win the first round outright (which I think is quite a likely prospect.)

    Some countries are claimed to have decided whom to support already.
    Australia is not on that list.
    Also, Macro appears to be well ahead of Dvorkovich based on this list so far. I think alot may change...

    That list is the list of countries nominating each particular ticket (Malcolm Pein said the Makropoulos ticket had a few more that they left off.) A country could decide to support a ticket but not to nominate it, or vice versa.

    In any case Australia has not made any decisions at this stage.

    The huge number of Makropoulos ticket nominations makes me suspect he could win on the first ballot. But because it is a secret ballot, one doesn't know.

    Would some of these nominations have been submitted before the full field was known, for instance when it was just Makro v Kirsan? With no Kirsan and two other non-Kirsans the equation may change when it comes to a vote.

    Dvorkovich entered to win and he has backing of Russian government...curious if he will try to simply ''buy'' all of the African votes

    Many may well have been submitted before Dvorkovich announced. Short has been running since late May and I think a lot of the federations that voted for Kasparov would have held fire waiting to see if an anti-establishment type candidate emerged anyway.

    Poll added

    I've added a poll which mimics most of the possible choices that a FIDE Delegate (that would be, er, me) faces in a case of there being two rounds of voting.

    Voting is confidential.

    FIDE Announces Anti-Corruption Measures

    http://www.fide.com/component/conten...-measures.html

    No Federation Presidents, delegates or officials in FIDE of any national chess federation should accept any gifts, subsidy, inducements, financial or otherwise, or accept any hospitality from a Presidential or Continental electoral candidate, member, adviser or supporter of a Presidential ticket or electoral candidate. All Presidents, officials, delegates or candidates should immediately report any such offer to the Electoral Integrity Committee.

    My detailed take on the elections so far.
    The ''no parties thrown'' policy is probably aimed at stopping Dvorkovich who has the biggest budget of all...but I still think that if he/people behind him will want to take over FIDE desperately ''buying off'' Makro will not be that hard.

    What source do we have for the statement by Malcolm Pein that Makropoulos intends, if successful, to stand down upon expiration of his initial term?

    There isn't an explicitly "no parties thrown" clause; that's just my interpretation of what the policy actually means. But I agree; I suspect there is concern about Russia trying to buy the election.
