The Catholicos of the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church has said the church will not take part in any recommendations on voting, related to an upcoming by-election.

From the article:
Speaking to mediapersons at the Catholicate Palace here on Tuesday, Catholicos of the East and Malankara Metropolitan Baselius Mar Thoma Paulose II said the Church had always kept itself away from directly involving in politics. “In spite of the fact that the Church has serious differences of opinion with the UDF government in the State on the issue of denial of justice [to it] in the church row, the Church has decided not to issue any official directive with regard to the ensuing elections,” he said.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
