Thursday October 23, 2003 (0441 PST)



JEDDAH/RIYADH, October 24 (Online): The Kingdom's possible move to debate rules for granting citizenship to foreigners has met with a largely enthusiastic response from expatriates here .



Ehsanul Haque, a Jeddah-based Pakistani electrical engineer and social worker, said: "I welcome the Shoura debate. I've read some letters in the media that citizenship will be restricted to certain nationalities. If that is the case then it is unfortunate. I consider this the best opportunity for professionals like me to apply for Saudi citizenship.



But I would not like to do this at the cost of my own nationality." S.M. Arshad, an American national who has been living in Jeddah for over 12 years, was enthusiastic. "I'll be among the first applicants.



If accepted, I won't mind giving up my American nationality." The two holy cities were a major consideration for Linogaranao Mapandi, a Filipino civil engineer from Mindanao who has been living in the Kingdom for 24 years. "I wholeheartedly welcome the debate in the Kingdom. This is a very good move for people like us, as we can be close to the holy Haram. It will be difficult for me to visit with my family once I return home for good."



In Riyadh, Indians and Pakistani expatriates welcomed the proposal, which they described as a long-awaited move. Atiq-ur-Rahman Geelani, a manager, said it would boost Saudi manpower .



According to Abdul Malik Mujahid, general manager at a publishing firm, it is a landmark move. "However, I believe that the Shoura Council should also consider key professionals like doctors and engineers who only have a smattering of Arabic."



Siddique Veliankode, a translator and author of several books, welcomed the move but said the citizenship rules required some clarification. "It is not clear whom the intending candidates should approach for a character certificate," he said .
