The Homeland Affairs section will deal with internal law enforcement, policing, response, detection and apprehension.

The Ministry of Defence the Opposition Leader said will concentrate on border protection; form a network to work with international allies in intelligence and joint operations and emphasis to deal with terrorist activities.
