Though the PCA and the Classical Chess Championship have failed, the wish to reform, dethrone or replace the FIDE evidently remains strong, at least in some quarters of the chess world. Some suggest that the present FIDE leadership remains entrenched with little authentic support. I lack personal knowledge of the matter, but the press one reads does seem pretty one-sided, does it not? The press seems implicitly to concur in the premise (never mind the finding) that the FIDE were crooked. The FIDE's present regime could be excellent for all I know but, if a credible defense of it exists, the defense does not seem to be appearing in any language I can read, nor am I aware of it.
If this is correct, then conditions would seem to be ripe for the rise of a new organization to contest the FIDE's authority. However, I know of none such. Is there such a new organization? Is any serious effort in planning or underway to reform, dethrone or replace the FIDE?
To be clear, I am not asking whether the FIDE is a good organization or a bad one, but rather whether and in what way a credible alternative does or soon might exist.
