  • [01] PRESIDENT - ELECTION OF NEW ARCHBISHOP

    President Tassos Papadopoulos hopes that the new primate of the Church of Cyprus, to be elected today, will enjoy the widest possible support and that he will be in a position to lead the Church to better days ahead. I hope everything runs smoothly in todays electoral process for a new Archbishop and wish that whoever is elected will enjoy the broadest support, among the clergy and the people, the President said, as 131 persons, clergy and laymen, vote in a secret ballot to elect the head of the Church.

    President Papadopoulos wished that the new Archbishop, having the widest possible support, will be able to help the Church to reach its rightful place and assist members of the Holy Synod, the Church most senior body, to regain the prestige they have lost.

    The new head of the Church of Cyprus will be elected today by the Electroral Assembly, comprising 31 ex officio members, such as bishops, deputy bishops, abbots, monks and nuns, and 100 general representatives, representing the candidates for the post of the Primate of the Church. The name of the new Archbishop, to be elected among the three hopefuls Paphos bishop Chrysostomos and Limassol bishop Athanasios and Abbot of Kykko Monastery Nikiforos, is expected to be announced in the afternoon.

    The first ballot has not given the majority to any of the candidates so a second ballot is underway at present.
