Canon 183

1. The convocation having been canonically made, if two-thirds

of the bishops who are obliged to attend the synod of bishops of

the patriarchal Church are present in the designated place, not

counting those who are legitimately impeded, the synod is to be

declared canonical and the election can proceed. 2. The

bishops are freely to elect the one whom before all others they

consider worthy and suitable before the Lord. 3. For election

an absolute majority of the votes of those present is required;

after three inconclusive ballots, the votes are cast in the

fourth ballot for only those two candidates who received the

greatest number of votes in the third ballot. 4. If in the

third or fourth ballots, because of a tied vote, it is not established who the candidates are for the new ballot or who has been

elected, the tie is decided in favor of him who is senior according to presbyteral ordination. If no one precedes the others in

presbyteral ordination, the one who is senior in age.
