The Ghana Police Service will be providing protection for flagbearers of the various political parties in the country ahead of the November polls, Director of Public Affairs with the Police administration, DSP Cephas Arthur has disclosed.

He said this arrangement is in line with the Service’s commitment to beef up security around the various flagbearers prior to the election.

According to a Ghana Police Service statement, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor met the representatives of political parties to consider providing protection for their leaders.

The IGP used the opportunity to pledge to the representatives the agenda of the Service to deploy about four police personnel to each of their presidential candidates and running mates.

However, DSP Arthur has noted the leadership of the Service does not want to impose security detail on the flagbearers and their running mates arguing the political parties have the opportunity to make their choice of security officers.

“It is a matter of somebody’s private security and we don’t want to give somebody he does not trust”, he said.

He said the Police made similar arrangement for flagbearers of the political parties in the 2012 general election arguing this is nothing new.
