Resolution 51 - Election and Retirement of Bishops and Archbishops

Resolution 51

Election and Retirement of Bishops and Archbishops

This Conference:

1. Urges all provinces to ensure that their provincial provisions for election and retirement of bishops and archbishops are unambiguous and are adhered to.

2. Recommends that, where problems arise regarding implementation of such provisions, and such problems cannot be solved at the provincial level, the regional conferences of Primates should be called upon to advise, and if such conferences fail to solve the problem, the matter is referred to the Meeting of the Primates of the Anglican Communion.
