The interests surrounding elections of a new Orthodox Patriarch in Romania

The Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church (BOR) will elect the new Patriarch on Wednesday, September 12. Experts say that the real goal of the elections is the new line of the Romanian Orthodox Church, a fight between traditionalists and modernists.

Candidates for the Patriarchy will be proposed on Wednesday but they are already known. The favorites are Moldova archbishop Daniel Ciubotea and Cluj archbishop Bartolomeu Anania. However, IPS Teofan, Oltenia’s archbishop has a fair shot.

Even if it does not resemble an electoral fight, the camps are already split and the propaganda mechanism are on the move.
