Because they believe in the equality of all bishops, which include patriarchs
Eastern Orthodox Churches
Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople
Bartholomew I, Ecumenical Patriarch.
The Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I is the spiritual leader of well over 250–300 million Orthodox Christians. Though the Ecumenical Patriarch is not considered to be the head of the Eastern Orthodox Church, his position does carry authorities that places him as the de facto leader of the Church, although his position is not at all equivalent to that of the Pope of Roman Catholicism. His official rank is primus inter pares (first among equals). The title "Ecumenical Patriarch" is a title that is exclusive and specific to the Patriarch of Constantinople and distinguishes the position, role, and responsibility of the office within the broad family of the fourteen autocephalous or self-governing Orthodox Churches around the world.
He presides in person or through a delegate over any council of Orthodox primates and/or bishops in which he takes part and serves as primary spokesman for the Orthodox communion, especially in ecumenical contacts with other Christian denominations. He has no direct jurisdiction over the other patriarchs or the other autocephalous Orthodox churches, but he alone among his fellow-primates enjoys the right of convening extraordinary synods consisting of them and/or their delegates to deal with ad hoc situations. His chief function as leader is as the spiritual leader of the Eastern Orthodox Church and the protector of orthodoxy in church.
Additionally, because of his work and the work of his predecessor, Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios, who established September 1 as the day for the protection of the environment, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew has also been called the "Green Patriarch".
The Orthodox Church teaches that all bishops are equal. To be sure, there are different ranks of bishops (patriarch, archbishop, metropolitan, bishop); nevertheless, a bishop is a bishop. Such differences apply to the administration of a church or group of churches, not to the nature of the bishop. The president of a synod of bishops is called archbishop (Greek custom) or metropolitan (Russian custom).
In other words, there can be no Church without a bishop, no bishop without the Eucharist, and no bishop or Eucharist without the true faith, the Apostolic Faith, "the faith once delivered to the saints." (Jude 3) "The Church is in the bishop and the bishop in the Church," wrote St. Cyprian of Carthage.
Put another way, there is no Church where there is no bishop, and there is no bishop where there is no succession of bishops from the Apostles (apostolic succession); and there can be no succession from the bishops without the faith of the Apostles.
...they don't have 5 patriarchs doe.....
Only one to look over their. Google didn't say anything about having 5 patriarchs (and I didn't use wikipidia)
