Forensic investigator makes Agang SA's list

2014-03-13 08:19
Johannesburg - Forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan has made the Parliamentary list of Agang SA, the party announced on Wednesday.

"I am extremely pleased to announce that well-known and respected forensic consultant Paul O'Sullivan has joined Agang SA and is on our National Assembly list," leader Mamphela Ramphele said in a statement.

O'Sullivan has worked on some high profile cases including that of former police chief Jackie Selebi and Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir.

The party submitted its election lists to the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) on Wednesday.

Ramphele said the lists demonstrate a leadership that would be able to fight corruption, provide leadership to the country, and take the party's manifesto and plan to build a winning South Africa to voters across the country.

Ramphele said O'Sullivan would be joining a number of candidates with a legal background, including John McConnachie, Andrew Gasnolar, and Mike Tshishonga, a former deputy director-general of justice.

"I am particularly pleased that the Agang SA list of candidates for the National Assembly features a number of individuals who have shown their mettle in the fight against corruption that is threatening to bring this country to its knees...," said Ramphele.

She said the candidate lists were representative of the various demographics of the country, drawing from the volunteers who helped build the organisation.

"We have talented young leaders like Nyameka Mguzulo, who has come to us from the African National Congress Youth League and... Gasnolar, who is an admitted attorney and a World Economic Form Global Shaper, among other accolades," she said.
