Bishop Sahak Mashalian elected Locum Tenens of Turkey’s Armenian Patriarchate

Bishop Sahak Mashalian has been elected Locum Tenens of the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople.

The Patriarchate initiated elections of the new Patriarch after Archbishop Mesrob Mutafyan passed away on March 8 following a long illness.

The Turkish government insisted that Armenians first elect a Locum Tenens, who will manage the activity of the Patriarchate in the transition period before a Patriarch is elected.
