Abusinessshould not be involved in politicaldiscussions to avoid being linked to a particular politicalaffiliation. Businesses should be perceived to be politicallyneutral. This is because the clients of companiesareusually composedof people from different political backgrounds. Therefore, takingsides in political discussions will make the company seem biasedtowards a particular politicalside,a scenario that should beavoided.

Businessesare people`sinvestments and risk being lost as a result of favoringa political affiliation over another because politics involvesprobability. If the supported side loses,the winning teammay formulate policies that may end up targeting the business,therefore leading to financial losses.
