Every Tuesday Parliament engages in a battle of political ideas on a rotational basis and today it's the Economic Freedom Fighters' turn.

The South African reports that Julius Malema will be introducing its topic during the sitting covering:

“Building state capacity through insourcing of government and all state-owned companies’ workers.”

Economic Freedom Fighter's policy lays out in painstaking detail how they would build a state-owned monopoly in all sectors, including construction, land and even pharmaceuticals.

The party is a firm believer that the free market has contributed to the situation South Africa is currently faced with, with white monopoly capital and the ANC taking considerable blame for this from the EFF.

The EFF has also been one of the greatest leaders of the land reform movement, but the details of the party's official stance on this have undergone numerous changes.

First, the Red Berets had called for the nationalisation of land, with the state in this concept owning 'all land'. However, the party has changed its footing on this, saying that the state 'will not own your house'.

The 'insourcing' of employment opportunities is another policy the EFF has pushed for, which would see the government transformed into the country's largest source of work for citizens.

The EFF is expected to explain how this would curb unemployment during the sitting on Tuesday afternoon.
