Proactive Nacta

309

SECTION 4 of the National Action Plan (NAP) pledges a resolve to activate and strengthen the National Counter-Terrorism Authority (Nacta). By appointing an in-service, full-time law-enforcement expert as head of Nacta, the federal government has taken a step toward fulfilling this requirement.

In Pakistan, internal security is the shared domain of 33 provincial and federal organisations. The total strength of these agencies exceeds 600,000; however, in the fight against terrorism the absence of a coordination apparatus has been particularly felt.
