Am I right in thinking that to win the first ballot you need at least 50% of the votes? Unless one candidate then withdraws, all three remain for the second ballot, with the winner now being the one with the most votes.
The FIDE Regulations don't seem to specify what happens beyond a first ballot, but I have put this question to Malcolm who informed me that the bottom candidate drops out. No doubt Nick Faulks can also confirm this.

No I can't, but I am pursuing it. After the huge legal costs wasted on haggling with Kasparov's American lawyers in Istanbul on every word of the Statutes, surely this basic point was not missed?

Topic closed refer to the Take 2 thread please.

I might even merge the two but that would probably get incredibly messy.
