Johannesburg - Agang SA's national and provincial lists of candidates for the upcoming general election reflects the diversity of the country, leader Mamphela Ramphele said on Wednesday.

"The list represents all the experience, gender, skills and commitment required to turn the country around," she told reporters in Johannesburg.

Nyameka Mguzulo, former ANC Women's Youth League co-ordinator, was elected as Agang's youth forum convenor.

"As a young woman, Nyameka plays an important role as the voices of young people are often not heard," Ramphele said.

Angela Pitso, who was chosen as the party's women's convenor, was also an entrepreneur.

"Woman form the majority of the population and it is important for their voices to be heard," Ramphele said.

Women and the youth had the power to turn the country around.

Other candidates on the list, included forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan, who Ramphele described as "Mr Anti-corruption", and former master of the high court in the justice department Mike Tshisonga, who she described as "Mr Whistle-blower. Both came from a legal background.
