IESF to elect a new president.

Colin Webster (Mind Sports South Africa) giving the opening address at IESF's 9th World Championships - Busan
International Esports Federation (IESF) shall be electing a new President at its Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) to be held on 9 November 2018 in Koahsuing City, Chinese Taipei.

IESF's Ordinary General Meeting coincides with its 10th World Championships and will no doubt be attended by the Presidents of all its member National Federations.

There are only three individuals that currently qualify for election. The three are Silviu Stroei (Romania), Constantine Surkot (Russia), and Colin Webster (South Africa).

All three individuals have had an immeasurable impact on esports in their own nations as well as within IESF, and it will indeed be interesting to see who the membership chooses to chair the organisation that is leading esports forward as a fully accredited sport.

The missive sent out by IESF, reads as follows:

"Referring with the upcoming Ordinary General Meeting to be held on November 9th, Kaohsiung

Members are reminded that at such Ordinary General Meeting, IESF shall elect a new President to serve out the remaining term.

 Members are Notified of Article 31 of International Esports Federation's Statutes, which provides that:
  •  Any nomination of a candidate for election as President of International Esports Federation shall be nominated by the Full Member to which he/she is affiliated and in good-standing, and 
  • has already completed a full term of office in IESF for which they were elected, and 
  • has been recommended by at least one-third of Members, and/or 
  • ecommended by a majority of the Board members, and 
  • shall be delivered to the Secretary General ( ) not later than 5 October 2018."
