Elections for the next bishop of Paphos will take place on February 19, when one of the three top candidates chosen by the public will be approved by the Holy Synod.

Voting will take place on that Sunday between 10am-5pm, with a break between 1pm-2pm.

The post remains vacant after the former bishop Georgios was elected the new archbishop of the Church of Cyprus on December 24.

Eligible to vote are Orthodox Christians over 18 and Paphos permanent residents, meaning they have lived in the district for at least a year.
