An archbishop or metropolitan, in the present sense of the term, is a bishop who governs a diocese strictly his own, while he presides at the same time over the bishops of a well-defined district composed of simple dioceses but not of provinces.
The jurisdiction of the archbishop is twofold, episcopal and archiepiscopal.
Archbishops are as a rule only titular, without any suffragans, but with their own diocese, the same as most of the Catholic metropolitans in the East.

 Archbishop Romero
Archbishop Romero’s martyrdom came in the midst of terrible civil strife that would become even worse during the 1980s until it was finally resolved by a 1992 peace accord.
As has often been the case in the 20th century, Archbishop Romero was martyred even though he had taken neither side in the conflict, but had tried to maintain Christ’s own position of asking the warring parties to forgo violence and hatred, and to seek a reasonable compromise and reconciliation with one another.
Archbishop Romero had repeatedly disputed this interpretation and, though trying to discover au authentic form of liberation for his people, denounced violence by rebels as much as by the government.

 Bishop - OrthodoxWiki
The title of archbishop or metropolitan may be granted to a senior bishop, usually one who is in charge of a large ecclesiastical jurisdiction or archdiocese.
The change in the Greek tradition came about because at one point in history, the diocesan bishops of ancient sees (which in the Greek world are pretty much all of them) all came to be styled as metropolitans.
Thus, while in the Slavic and Antiochian traditions, an archbishop is a senior bishop with an honorific title, a metropolitan is a bishop in charge of a major see and thus holding a territorial title.

 Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Interview: Rowan Williams
This is the transcript of an interview between the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, and the Guardian's editor Alan Rusbridger
Actually, I think they were quite sparing in what they said in public, I don't think that they would have identified it in terms of giving a lead, they would have seen it as an attempt to make a responsible contribution to public debate where appropriate, some of it abstract.
That means that, structurally speaking, in the church as I believe it to be, it really is wrong for an Archbishop to be the leader of a party; in a polarised and deeply divided church it's particularly important, I think, not to be someone pursuing an agenda that isn't the agenda of the whole.
