Pretoria - Agang SA is building a powerful campaign machine to fight the 2014 general elections, leader Mamphela Ramphele said on Saturday at the party’s launch in Pretoria.

She said Agang will be holding an elective conference later this year.

Ramphele said the party had appointed a world class team including Nkosinathi Solomon, Mills Soko,Tim Knapp and Rorisang Tshabalala.

“We will strike a balance between old hands and new face,” Ramphele promised.

Hundreds of people, most dressed in white T-shirts with Agang SA printed on them, arrived at the Tshwane Events Centre in Pretoria on Saturday for the official launch of the party.

Supporters gathered at information tents where they could register as a member of Agang SA while others lounged in the sun in front of a stage erected on the field.

A pamphlet with "Vote for your future. Vote for Agang SA in 2014" highlighted problems facing the country and how the party planned to combat problems such as corruption, jobs, education, healthcare and crime.

"Twenty years is too long to wait for jobs, homes, education, healthcare and safe streets," the pamphlet read.

Banners saying "Let's Build South Africa" and bunches of blue, red, white, yellow and green balloons adorned the arena.

She launched Agang as a political platform four months ago and has spent the time visiting communities around the country.
