Canon 153

1. A major archbishop is elected according to the norm of cann.

63-74. 2. After acceptance of the election, the synod of

bishops of the major archiepiscopal Church must notify the Roman

Pontiff through a synodal letter about the canonical conduct of

the election; however, the one who is elected, in a letter signed

in his own hand, must petition the confirmation of his election

from the Roman Pontiff. 3. After having obtained the confirmation, the one who is elected, in the presence of the synod of

bishops of the major archiepiscopal Church, must make a profession of faith and promise to carry out faithfully his office;

afterwards his proclamation and enthronement are to be performed.

If, however, the one who is elected is not yet an ordained

bishop, the enthronement cannot validly be done before he receives episcopal ordination. 4. If however the confirmation is

denied, a new election is to be conducted within the time established by the Roman Pontiff.
