    0

    Two lawmakers revived a proposal to convert the existing Presidential Security Group (PSG) into a highly professionalized civil security organization to be named Government Protection and Security Service (GPSS). According to Reps. Christopher Co and Rodel Batocabe of AKO-Bicol party list, their proposal aims to insulate GPSS from partisan politics while maximizing the organization’s efficiency and effectiveness. The solons explained their proposal embodied in House Bill 335 is pursuant to the 1987 Constitution which mandates that the armed forces shall be insulated from partisan politics. It prohibits members of the military from engagement, directly or indirectly, in any partisan political activity except to vote. PSG is currently an Army unit of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) with headquarters at Malacañang Palace. Also assigned to PSG are police personnel and operators from Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Weapons and Tactics and the Special Action Force.
