Pope St John Paul II
In 1996 the Vatican issued Universi Dominici Gregis.
Universi Dominici Gregis (February 22, 1996) | John Paul II
This defined future conduct for conclaves. It set out the conditions where a conclave may be declared invalid. Those who participate in collusion to elect a pope to their liking face excommunication and the election is to be declared invalid.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE, NOW THAT THE PRELATES WHO SPOKE AT THE ROME SYMPOSIUM OF 07 APRIL 18 HAVE CALLED FOR ACTION?
The St Gallen Mafia
There are reports that a group of cardinals conspired to remove Pope Benedict, and replace him with Pope Francis. Some cardinals have made this claim public.

The activities of these cardinals now leads to the possibility of a conspiracy to appoint Cardinal Bergoglio as Pope. If cardinals lobbied each other before electing Pope Francis, this places the validity of the conclave in doubt.
Was the Election Valid?
Questions have been raised about whether Pope Francis was truly elected Pope, and whether those who took part in the conspiracy have been automatically excommunicated.

A conspiracy to elect Pope Francis? Don't believe it.
This defence of the election of Pope Francis seems to come largely from non-Catholic, even anti-Catholic media.

What can we believe?
If it can be demonstrated that a group of cardinals conspired to elect Pope Francis, with or without his knowledge, then we can assume that they have excommunicated themselves, and Francis is an antipope.
Since they have publicly admitted colluding, this lends strength to the theory that Pope Benedict remains sole Pope.
However, if the statements of cardinals admitting collusion could be considered a form of bragging, and untrue, the Francis remains Pope.
In both cases we need a group of courageous cardinals to meet and demand that the matter be clarified, since the people are entitled to certainty as to the leadership of Christ's Church.
Chaos in management favours only the enemies of the Church.
