2 steps to a healthy and vibrant Malaysian chess community.
The first step is that we need to acknowledge the legitimate grievances of all the stakeholders. Ref: Here. This means we need to recognise that there is a need for fair selection; that there is a need to curb illegitimate use of authority. Once this is recognised then we can go to step 2.
The second step is for clear rules and procedures for all to follow. And there must be a mechanism for conflict resolution that is timely, fair and transparent.
Without those 2 steps there will continuously be senseless issues that will take away the energy from the entire chess community and detract us from focusing our energies on the development of our chess. And without this energy we will not see success.
I think this is common sense. MCF is the governing body of Malaysian chess. This is not in dispute. It is the way we have been governed that have raised dissatisfaction. It is the hope of the Malaysian chess community that the new committee in MCF will do the necessary to address the issues.
