Dear “Butch” Pichay,
Team Kasparov thanks you for your and NCFP’s endorsement of Garry for the FIDE presidency.
We agree that it is time for change. FIDE needs new ideas and energy, and Garry will lead FIDE to achieve new and exciting initiatives that will be of great benefit for chess in Asia and the Philippines. Importantly, Garry is committed to transforming FIDE into a truly global organization that listens to and supports its membership.
We are excited about what we can accomplish together. Your unwavering support for our program has helped provide Asia with much needed leadership that will bring positive change.
Ignatius (on behalf of Team Kasparov)
