Durban - The National Freedom Party (NFP) has established branches in all provinces except the Northern Cape, it said on Tuesday.

The NFP expected to contest the 2014 national election in all provinces, its leader Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi told reporters in Durban.

It was actively recruiting members across the country, and had 270 000 "volunteers" nationally, who were promoting the party, she said.

The NFP was formed in January 2011 when Msibi left the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), where she was former national chairperson.

Three months later, the NFP contested the 2011 local government elections, and secured 2.4% of the national vote and 10.4% of the vote in KwaZulu-Natal.

The party has failed to make much headway in by-elections, losing a number of seats. However, it was a surprise winner in a recent by-election in North West.

KaMagwaza-Msibi said the party expected to release its manifesto before the end of the year.
