The President of the Turkish Chess Federation (TCF) Ali Nihat Yazici doesn't intend to stand for the fourth term. He announced that over dinner at Konya during the Turkish Team Championship, as reported by the TCF site.

"I tried to leave the presidency to other associates in the past, but I was persuaded otherwise", the site quotes Yazici's words, "But this time I succeeded. During the forthcoming elections of the Turkish Chess Federation's President, I will leave the office after twelve years of work. A well-known and respected by everyone person will stand in the elections for the president. It's the Vice-President of the TCF Ms. Gulkiz Tulay. Our team came to this singular decision. I think that under her management the Federation will achieve even bigger successes".

"Tulay works very actively with the aim of developing chess; she did so especially in the past four years, since she was entrusted with the post of the Vice-President and, as a part of this, was given responsibility for performances of the national teams, including youth and junior teams. In her speech, she thanked everyone for their confidence in her and said that she will try to do everything to justify the team's trust", says the site's statement.
