The EFF has released its elections list for the upcoming national elections on May 8.

Singer Ringo Madlingozi is listed at number 39 on the EFF’s elections list, under his real name rather than his stage name, as Brian Sindile Madlingozi.

This is the first time he has officially entered the ring as a politician. At number 39 on the list, this means Madlingozi will end up in parliament if the EFF either match or better their performance in the last national elections. In 2014, the party achieved 6.35% at the polls, or 1,169,259 votes. Polls so far are estimating that the party may almost double their achievements in 2014 this year, with one released recently by the Institute for Race Relations (IRR) putting them at 12.2% nationally.
