Applying Citizenship Examination Halt?
Today is a good and sunny day. It's time to speak up and wondering what had happened to the Brunei citizenship this year? Since I took the examination last year, the result won't be out between June or July (as much I know). But my friends and colleagues who took the examination two years ago, the result is not yet even announce or mention until today.
What's going on? There are no newspaper reports, many speculations around and rumors. The only thing I heard something has happens inside the Government over the Citizenship system. Majority of them are baseless except one so far I recently found out that this month the registration is officially stopped in KB when one of my friend sister tried to applied two weeks ago. I'm not really sure if numbers hit the target limit and they never explain why. Still, for others who waited for two years, it definitely suck and wanted to know the answer when the Government going to announce the result.
To be honest, I don't really understand how can the governments able to delay the result for years, seriously. If the whole nation primary and secondary students can get their result within 3-4 months. There is no way less than thousand of Permanent Residents (including the retake) papers require more than a year to settle. This is just ridiculous and unbelievable system in Brunei. There are even trials and require us to wait at least another 2-3 years to get call for fully register citizenship only if we pass. everything else falling into the hand of waiting game and test us if we are going to leave the country.
It’s sad that we have to suck it up and move on. I also fully well aware some locals who work in the governments doesn't like us getting the citizenship either. I encounter of such persons and it weren’t easy to deal with. I really hope HM do something and improve this citizenship system situations. But I afraid it’s not happening because this country are changing and heading weird direction.
