Africa Chess Media: "Nigel Short: The 2018 FIDE Presidential Candidate"

Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 20:15

Firstly, I would like to thank you for agreeing to an interview on such short notice. (From the initial request for an interview to the start of the interview was less than 40 minutes. I was surprised by how readily Nigel Short agreed to this interview. Within minutes I was setting up).

Nigel Short: Thank you for the interview. I have been a veteran of 3 campaigns in previous FIDE elections, but I have never actually been on anyone’s ticket. This is the first time I am on a ticket, and not only that, but actually heading it. I am choosing my own team.
