I haven't got the permanent residency yet so the administrative route isn't for me at the moment!!
The people responsible for making such decisions are highly unlikely to approve someone for citizenship if they haven't fulfilled the criteria for permanent residency.
As i said before I'm going to re-apply again."If you don't ask, you won't get".
It's pretty pointless reapplying if you've been refused once, unless something dramatic has changed.
I don't give up delphi!!!!
In this case, you might as well - the President isn't going to approve an application from a mundane person who already has the right to live and work here.
