The National Security Bureau (NSB) has designated three teams from the Special Service Command Center to undertake security measures and personal protection for the three main parties’ presidential tickets.
NSB Director-General Yang Kuo-chiang (楊國強) oversaw the assignment of the units yesterday, which was done by drawing lots at the command center, with the process recorded and made public to help ensure fairness and impartiality.
Yang said the three teams are to provide the highest level of personal protection and conduct to safeguard each of the three main presidential and vice presidential tickets as they gear up for national election campaigns in the run-up to the Jan. 16 vote.
He said the teams are ready to commence work once the candidates complete their official registration at the Central Election Commission (CEC) on Nov. 24 and will carry out their duties until 24 hours after the commission posts the official election results. [FULL STORY][
