Independent Politician
An INDEPENDENT or NONPARTISAN POLITICIAN is an individual politician not affiliated with any political party . There are numerous reasons why someone may stand for office as an independent. * Independents may support policies which are different from those of the major political parties. * In some parts of the world electors may have a tradition of electing independents, so standing for a political party is a disadvantage. * In some countries (including Russia ) a political party can only be registered if it has a huge number of members in more than one region, but in certain regions only a minority of electors support the major parties. * In some countries (including Kuwait ), political parties are unlawful and all candidates thus stand as independents
