This time around, President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who has been the President of World Chess Federation (FIDE) since November 1995, is facing former World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov, to decide who will be FIDE president. 

               The results will be known within the next few days. May the best man win!
