Dubia Cardinal Proposes to Have Fewer Voters But Better Candidates For Conclave

Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, 92, proposed a reform of the conclave on Sandro Magister’s website (October 26): a reduced number of cardinals but better quality of the eligible candidates.

He observes that Francis has made thirty cardinals from Asia and Oceania while huge European archdioceses like Milan, Turin, Venice, Naples, Palermo, Paris (and the whole of France) have no cardinals.

This implies according to Brandmüller that at the next conclave, cardinals from around the world who know little or nothing about each other, will vote and thus “an essential prerequisite for responsible voting is missing”.

Therefore, Brandmüller proposes that participants at a conclave should be limited to a very reduced and truly Roman College of Cardinals. They should not necessarily elect another cardinal but could also elect a non-cardinal who has at least five years of experience in a leadership position at the Curia.
