Johannesburg - The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has completed Agang SA's registration, the fledgling political party said on Monday.

"We are delighted to confirm the completion of the registration of Agang SA with the IEC," spokesperson Thabo Leshilo said in a statement.

"We thank the IEC for the professionalism with which the application was handled."

Agang was launched by academic and businesswoman Mamphela Ramphele in Pretoria on 22 June. At the time, the party said about 5 000 supporters and volunteers attended the launch.

Leshilo said the registration was an important milestone for the party.

"It means that we can now collect membership fees and benefit from party political donations."

At the launch Agang SA had volunteers registering party members.

The volunteers said they received thousands of applications from supporters. People also registered online, for a R20 membership fee.
