The EFF often refers to itself as a revolutionary party for the people and the organisation will imminently be tabling some radical new ideas.

As the party heads to its second national people's assembly (NPA), a few innovative ideas will be up for discussion.

One of the major talking points will be the possible requirement that senior EFF leaders should possess a tertiary qualification in future.

New leaders will be elected at the gathering, but Briefly.co.za understands that a broad range of topics will be discussed as well.

The issue of academic merit comes amidst the controversy surrounding senior DA member John Steenhuisen who often has to bat away criticism that he doesn't hold a tertiary qualification.

The new tertiary requirement will only be applicable to members of the central command team (CCT).
