  1. Your statement is not supported by the article. Article says that 240 applications handed to citizens, but only 11 of those applications were submitted for processing.

    1. Thank you for keeping me in check. I read it as 11 returned for further processing but your take fits into the reports that initial registrations were taking 4 months. I apologize for my hasty posting.
