(ANSAmed) - PARIS - French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said today in Toulouse he wants to raise the lowering number of naturalizations by making it easier for foreigners to gain citizenship. Valls announced the immediate suppression of a questionnaire which is currently mandatory for foreigners applying for citizenship. The questionnaire is the instrument most discriminating applicants. The minister said he hopes that naturalizations will return to be on average 100,000 a year and anticipated it will not be indispensible anymore to have an open-ended contract rather than a fixed-term labour contract to acquire citizenship.
