Jan Kamras has run for president of the World Bridge Federation (WBF). The presidential election will take place at the WBF Congress during the World Bridge Series in August in Wrocław, Poland. So far, no other candidate has come forward. This represents the end of the era of Gianarrigo Rona; the Italian has been the top boss of global bridge since 2009.
Kamras is currently president of the European Bridge League (EBL). He will retire from that position during the European Championships to be held in Madeira from Sunday.
Two candidates have come forward so far to replace Kamras: the Dutchman Eric Laurant, the current treasurer of the EBL, and the German Josef Harsanyi. Laurant and Harsanyi are both members of the EBL Executive Committee.
