The English Chess Federation Board (ECF) accepted the resignation of Andrew Paulson as President. That is announced on the ECF website.

"The Board gratefully recognises Andrew Paulson’s contributions to English chess, from his organising of the FIDE Grand Prix and Candidates Tournaments in London to his untiring service since his election as President.  Further, the Board nominates Andrew Paulson for the position of Deputy President of the European Chess Union (Paulson is in Zurab Azmaiparashvili's ticket member) and looks forward to a close and constructive collaboration between the ECU and the ECF.  The Board recommends that the ECF Council at its April meeting approves a Motion to give Andrew Paulson standing during the ECU General Assembly election meeting in Tromsø in August by designating him as the official ECF Delegate at that meeting," is said on the website. 

Andrew Paulson was elected English Chess Federation president on October 12 last year. The decision was voted at the annual General Meeting. The ECF Board meeting held in early February 2014 the Board "passed a motion of No Confidence in Andrew Paulson." Paulson said "the Board attempted a coup d'état [...] In an attempt to solve this impasse, I will propose a new harmonious Board (replacing several of its current members) to Council at its regularly scheduled meeting in April, as the current one has been rendered dysfunctional. This will allow us to proceed constructively in the renewal of the ECF and its communications and marketing development that we promised at our election," he added.
