VATICAN CITY -- The process of electing a new pope is one step closer.

After five days of meetings, cardinals have announced the conclave will start Tuesday. This is according to the eighth General Congregation of the College of Cardinals.

During the conclave, 115 electors will participate in the voting process inside the Sistine Chapel, where they are sworn to an oath of secrecy.

Former Pope Benedict XVI resigned on February 28th, citing advanced age. He was the first pope to do so in almost 600 years. ClientIP: UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
