Garry Kasparov tweeted he now enjoyes holiday with the family after "very long and tiring FIDE campaign. I didn't win, but my team and I did a lot of good to promote chess," and added he is not going to "abandon our supporters or the many programs we created. Our friends & allies are for life & we keep our promises."

Kasparov also wrote: "After all of our work and the great response we received everywhere, I'd win in any room in the world except where the vote took place! Democracy doesn't work - in FIDE or anywhere - if there is no accountability. Ilyumzhinov got 110 votes. Those delegates should answer why.

Their fed members, their boards, should ask them what their chess community gets for that Ilyumzhinov vote. Rejected my $10m why, exactly?

Players can be active. For FIDE to change, players & fans must get involved in accountability for their representatives. Or changing them!"
