HIGHLIGHT

A sharp increase of the overall registration figure was noted in the first quarter of the year. It is believed that this is the direct consequence of a stricter application of the 30 days rule following pre-registration: if no action is taken by the security apparatus, the pre-registered individuals are automatically cleared at the end of 30 days and show as registered.
