Malema’s stern rules for EFF leadership and MPs as party ‘prepares to govern’
Merit will be a key factor for EFF MPs who want to return to parliament. The party's MPs must motivate what they have done in parliament to be reinstated. They must have matric, specially if they are the youth, which Malema insists should constitute 40% of MPs. It will not apply to older MPs such as Nokulunga Primrose Sonti and Makoti Sibongile Khawula.
“There will be those exceptional cases, but not of young people. Me and you had an opportunity to go to school,” Malema told party delegates in KwaZulu-Natal.
Malema said they will raise the bar for representation. The party's councillors, mayors and MMCs will be required to have post-matric qualifications.
