      NEWS In Brief

      ARCHBISHOP ELECTION

      Two of the favorites begin talks with supporters ahead of Thursday poll

      Two of the candidates vying to become then next archbishop of the
      Greek Orthodox Church had contact with supporters yesterday ahead of
      the Holy Synod vote on Thursday as one bishop said he would not vote
      in the election. Efstathios, bishop of Sparta, and Anthimos, bishop
      of Thessaloniki, met with their respective supporters yesterday as
      reports emerged that Bishop Spyridonas of Lagadas said he was not
      well enough to attend Thursday's meeting of the Holy Synod, prompting
      rumors on whether he had been put under pressure not to attend.
