The Archbishop's see is located in the city of Nicosia. The [[primate|primacy]] of the Church of Cyprus was until recently vacant, with the announcement of the retirement of Archbishop [[Chrysostomos I (Kykkiotis) of Nea Justiniana|Chrysostomos]] due to Alzheimer's disease. However, the Church of Cyprus, on Sunday, [[November 6]], 2006, elected her first new leader in 29 years. [[Metropolitan]] Chrysostomos of Paphos, 65, was elected archbishop after winning a runoff vote against Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol.{{ref|1}}
The [[Holy Synod]] of the Autocephalous Church of Cyprus is the highest Church Authority. There are five bishoprics with the ruling bishops styled as Metropolitans. These bishoprics are: Paphos, Kitium, Kyrenia, Limassol, and [[Bishopric of Morphou(Cyprus)|Morphou]].
