A new bill foreseeing the granting of Greek citizenship to thousands of second-generation immigrants was put up for public consultation (in Greek) yesterday (14.05). The bill, which is to remain open for consultation until May 25 before submission to Parliament, stipulates that applicants must have been enrolled at a Greek primary school at the time of the application. In addition, at least one of their parents must have lived in Greece legally for five years prior to their birth. This draft law is an attempt to improve on previous regulations which required both parents to have legally resided in the country for a minimum of five years in order for their children to qualify.
