President Nelson to speak to LDS Church members, hold press conference on Tuesday | Deseret News

The church has been without a First Presidency since the death of President Thomas S. Monson, the 16th president of the LDS Church, who died Jan. 2 at the age of 90. His funeral was held Friday in Salt Lake City.

The First Presidency was dissolved upon President Monson’s death. Since then, the church has been led by the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, an interim period referred to as “apostolic interregnum.”

The senior apostle of the church has been chosen to be the church’s president throughout its history. President Nelson is the faith’s senior apostle.The quorum is expected to meet this weekend. It could vote to continue the interregnum or organize a new First Presidency. That could happen Saturday but is more likely to happen on Sunday. Monday is a holiday in Utah and generally a day off for LDS general authorities, who act as traveling ministers around the world on weekends.

If the quorum voted to reorganize the First Presidency, and President Nelson were set apart as the 17th president of the church, it would create a vacancy in the presidency of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

President Nelson then would select his counselors in the First Presidency. A new president of the Quorum of the Twelve also would be selected. That would be the second-most senior apostle, unless he is called to be a counselor in the First Presidency. Then an acting president of the Twelve would be named.Follow all the news from the press conference at DeseretNews.com or by downloading the app. The broadcast and press conference will also be streamed live at DeseretNews.com.
