- The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is looking to enforce a requirement for senior leaders to possess a tertiary qualification in future
- Another potential requirement is that leaders would have needed to be members of the party for at least five years
- The party will discuss these issues and elect new leaders at its second national people's assembly (NPA)
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.
In its draft policy document, the party has also proposed that members should have served the party for at least five years to become eligible for leadership positions.
News 24 confirmed that Nasrec will host approximately 4 500 delegates at the NPA in December.
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).
