The Ecumenical Patriarchate does not interfere in the upcoming archdiocesan elections of the Church of Cyprus, states the Fanari, characterizing non-existent estimates of 'ecclesiastics' circles' that saw the light of day.
In the announcement, it is stated that “the Press and Communication Office of the Ecumenical Patriarchate declares to all interested parties that His Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch Mr. Bartholomew and the Mother Church of Constantinople do not interfere in any way in the upcoming archbishopric elections in the Holy Church of Cyprus. Any other estimates, of various “ecclesiastical circles”, that have seen the light of day, are non-existent”.
