Petition Reform the system of obtaining Permanent Residence Certification/Card (PR)

The current system of PR discriminates against many groups of EU/EEA residents and their non-EEA spouses/civil partners. This reform will facilitate EU/EEA nationals to obtain Permanent Resident Certification/Card (PR), currently mandatory to become UK citizens (for those who wish to do so).

-EU/EEA nationals, their spouses/civil partners, their children, who have exercised treaty rights for less than 5 years, to complete their journey to PR

-Spouses/civil partners of UK service men/women to acquire PR without proof of residency
-PR to be protected under UK law
