I hear that the bottle neck is not so much with Varela signing the citizenship applications as it is with the fact that the swearing in room can accommodate only 30 people for the monthly swearing in ceremony. Only in Panama would it not occur to these folks to either hold the ceremony more than once a month or get a bigger room. Ya gotta love it (I do) !!!
