An independent politician is an individual not affiliated to any of a nation's political parties who decides to stand for a political office for which they are eligible. A person can be independent for many reasons including:

  • Conflicting views with all parties,
  • Failure to win a nomination
  • A way to run for political office without subjecting to a party's rules and jurisdiction.
  • In some nations (e.g. Shireroth and the Usian Republic), political parties are forbidden. Furthermore in some nations political parties are not specifically forbidden but instead contain non-partisan legislatures. One example of this is the Free Empire of Highland, where all citizens have seats and have no option to sit in party groups.
