In a much faster than expected election, the 115 voting cardinals in the concave chose a new pope in the second day of voting. This was remarkable news considering that many previous reports claimed that there was no clear front-runner to become the next pope. It tales 77 votes to be elected pope.
This was also one of the fastest elections in church history as well. One time in history it actually took three years to select a new pope because of so much issues within the church and enough division among the cardinals.
