The actual mangement of the ISU is clearly divided, with the direct management of Speed Skating and Figure Skating being under the two Vice Presidents. At the Congress the two section meetings are conducted separately and the decision made by each section are brough back to the Federation Delegates for ratification. The final say fof all Congress proposals rests with the Federation. The ISU President and all elected members of the ISU can be replaced by a vote of the Delegates sent to the Congress by each Member Federation. The revolt as mentioned was not a revolt is was and attempt to replace the ISU rather than replace management. As it turned out it was a mistake. Several well respected and competent Officials were lead down the path the destroyed their ability to serve the sport.
