Chapter 09 - The President and Deputy President

9.1. The President represents FIDE officially and can solely sign for FIDE.  All contracts signed by the President shall be subject to prior approval or subsequent ratification by the Presidential Board. Any contract that commits FIDE to an obligation or exposes FIDE to a potential liability of more than €100,000 must be submitted for ratification by the Executive Board or General Assembly.
9.2. The President presides over the meetings of the General Assembly, the Executive Board and the Presidential Board.
9.3. The President presents an annual report to the General Assembly.
9.4. The President’s decisions may be appealed to the General Assembly, Executive Board or Presidential Board. 
9.5. If the President is unable to act or if he duly authorises, then he can be represented by the Deputy President who shall exercise the powers of the President. The Deputy President can thus represent FIDE officially and can solely sign for FIDE.
9.6. In certain cases the FIDE President can also delegate specific tasks to other persons; this includes authorising in writing other FIDE officials to sign contracts on his behalf.
