    - Reform of the certification system of Greek language knowledge

The State took the Authority’s observations very seriously, by initially suspending the examinations and subsequently reforming the system of evaluation of “Greek proficiency” for naturalisation issues with the specific legislative provisions of Law 4604/2019.
