Dr. Chojnowski: Of course I cannot reveal my sources for any of this discussion as to the frontrunners for the position of Superior General of the SSPX, so take this with a "grain of salt."

With regard to the leading candidates being mentioned with only 2 1/2 weeks until the General Chapter on July 11th, here is the information I have heard about the situation:
 
 Leading Candidates:
 
 1st: Fr. David Pagliarani: Has been the leading candidate for at least 6 months. Is favored by the more  "conservative" of the SSPX priests. Was District Superior of Italy and is now Superior of the SSPX seminary in La Reja, Argentina. I will post an interview with Fr. Pagliarani below.
 
 2nd: Fr. Jurgen Wegner: Former District Superior of Canada and current District Superior of the United States. I have not heard his name mentioned for this position in the past, his name has just emerged strongly recently. I would say he is the dark horse moving quickly up to the front.
 
 3rd: Fr. Yves le Roux: Priest who replaced Bishop Williamson in the American Seminary in 2003. Has molded the whole life of the seminary for the past 15 years. Is considered a possible compromise candidate and a "centrist."
 
 4th: Fr. Niklaus Pfluger: 1st Assistant and the one in charge of transfers for a number of years now. Has been called "the power behind the throne." Recently, he said publicly that come July he "would not be in a leadership position in the SSPX." Treat that statement as you will.
 
 5th: Bishop Bernard Fellay: Superior General for an entire generation. Has stated that he does not want to be considered again for the position of Superior General. His re-re-elction is not likely, but who knows.
 
 I post below the 3 parts of an interview in 2011 with Fr. David Pagliarani, the frontrunner. This interview comes from the SSPX's website, sspx.org:

While it might seem like fun to guess these things, does it really matter anymore? It’s like a papal conclave these days, a modernist will walk out, whether liberal or conservative, but who cares, still a modernist? Honestly, who would steer the SSPX back on track, truly? Nobody that will be there next month unfortunately. I’m

I hope it's not Fr. Wegner.

He is very money-focused amd materialistic.

He also handled the debacle at Post Falls very badly.

He seems suited to the Novus Ordo/Vatican framework, which is scary.

Whoever it is will be a Fellay man, and the agenda will be carried forth trapping another generation to the SSPX wheel.

Fr. Wegner, small in stature, is not a leader, but he is very shrewd and administratively competent.

He's the effective administrator behind the leaders.  

For the ICA Post Falls Scandal, it's obvious he decisively shut down the sex scandal with the families using a private financial settlement.  

How else could he publicly boast after the private meetings with affected parties, that: "The scandal was over" ?

Fr. Wegner is an "operator", a priest of this world and if he were to be elected SG, he will wilt under the spotlight.

Why don't we have such threads about other ecclesia Dei groups like the FSSP, or Christ the King?

We should. They are the same thing as the SSPX.

They don't even have a bishop.

Well, not yet anyway.  I do think SSPX will be another indult group eventually.

Wouldn't it be honest if you would point out that the touted "interview with Fr. Pagliarani" is 7 years old?

They ARE another indult group. That is my point.

The only reason people equivocate on this is because they are compromised by attending the SSPX for sacraments. And some of our resistance priests are encouraging this! Such wimps!
