    A broad meeting of senior clergymen, chaired by the head of the Greek Orthodox Church Patriarch Bartholomew, convened in Switzerland and decided to honourably vacate the position of Archbishop of the Church of Cyprus, a move that will lead to elections for a new Archbishop.

    Archbishop Chrysostomos has been incapacitated for the past four years and is unable to perform his duties as the head of the Church.

    The decision was taken by majority, with 15 members voting in favour and seven against.

    Today`s meeting was attended, apart from Patriarch Bartholomew, by Cypriot Metropolitan Bishops of Paphos, Kitium, Limassol, Kyrenia and Morphou, and the Bishops of Arsinoe, Trimithounta and Kykkos. The Bishop of Salamina did not attend the broad meeting but sent his position in writing. Also present were the Patriarchs of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem.

    The Cypriot Metropolitan Bishops of Paphos, Kitium, Limassol and Kyrenia, as well as the Bishops of Arsinoe and Salamina voted against, along with the Patriarch of Antioch.
