Stricter rules for citizenship proposed by the right and far right in Greece

 Stricter rules for citizenship and a proposal backed by 85 New Democracy MPs and Golden Dawn to make the armed forces off-limits to those who are not of the ‘Greek race’!

A motion to amend existing legislation so that only those who are of the “Greek race” will be allowed to serve in the country’s armed forces was signed by 85 New Democracy MPs and tabled in parliament. They argue their proposed amendment, which is backed by extreme-right Golden Dawn, is crucial considering the “peculiarities” of Greek national defence issues and the law concerning citizenship (which the Council of State has ruled unconstitutional). Meanwhile, the government is getting ready to table a new citizenship bill, which will make the the rules stricter.
