Rome, May 15 - Italy's Parliament must soon deal
with a reform of its citizenship laws, Integration Minister
Cecile Kyenge said Wednesday.
"Citizenship reform is a real need and cannot be
postponed," said the Congo-born Kyenge.
Among other advantages, reforms could improve economic
growth prospects for the recession-struck country, she added
during question period.
Reform could occur via gradual regulatory changes made in
consultation with all government ministries, but work must begin
quickly, said the minister.
"I am confident that Parliament will soon begin to deal
with reform," said Kyenge.
The minister has stirred controversy with her plans to
press for reforms granting automatic Italian citizenship to the
children of immigrants born in Italy.
Automatic citizenship is rare in Europe, with France
providing the exception to the general rule of blood-based
citizenship rules.
However, most European countries are less rigid than Italy
regarding naturalization, and grant easier paths toward
citizenship for the children of immigrants.
