Independent Politician: – Also termed as nonpartisan politician, he/she is a politician who is not having any sort of affiliation with any political party. In some parts of the world electors can have a tradition of choosing or electing independents, so standing for a political party can be a big disadvantage. Kuwait states political parties as unlawful, hence candidates stand independent. Some independent politician may be affiliated to any party in the past continues to align with the party’s views but may not choose to stand in its name.
