The Triprosopon for the appointment of a new Archbishop of Cyprus is formed and is as follows: Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol, Metropolitan Isaiah of Tamassos, and Metropolitan Georgios of Paphos.
This paves the way for the scenarios for the selection of the Holy Synod. Considering that the Archbishop needs nine (9) votes from the Holy Synod to be elected and of course as a given that each will vote for himself, let’s see the balances that are created.
Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol has 4 votes, his and of three Bishops, of Ledra, Amathous, and Neapolis.
Metropolitan Isaiah of Tamassos has his own vote and the vote of Metropolitan Nikiforos of Kykkos.
Metropolitan Georgios of Paphos has the support of Barnabas of Trimithounta, Nektarios of Kition, Leontios of Chitra, Pagkratios of Arsinoe, and Gregorios of Mesaoria.
The keys are kept by Nektarios of Kyrenia, Basil of Constantia and Neophytos of Morphou, and Bishop Christoforos of Karpasia. Most are closer to the philosophy of Metropolitan George of Paphos and Vassilios of Constantia.
As reported by alphanews.live, an absolute majority is needed in the first count of nine votes and if there is no, in the second count, the two who pass, need an absolute majority.
