EFF in South Africa
Their rhetoric is redolent of Communism, but the Economic Freedom Fighters of South Africa are attracting admiration if not support across the board. From virtually nowhere, they gained 25 seats in this year's South African elections, making them the third party in the National Assembly after the 89 seats of the official opposition, the Democratic Alliance. After hitting the headlines with a spectacular breach of the parliament's dress code, they have continued by pursuing the corruption and cronyism of the ANC administration.
