Bail Organa and Mon Mothma

Mon Mothma and Bail Prestor Organa, two famous politicians

"Politicians always have something to hide, and it always comes back to haunt them, am I right? Oh, look who I'm asking. Room full of politicians."
CSF Lieutenant Tan Divo[src]

Politics was the system by which a govermental being or body was governed. Those involved in governing and formulating public policy were known as politicians. Most planets had their own political system. Most political systems had their own constitution and law system, however it had to comply with the Galactic Constitution if it was part of the Galactic Republic.

Most planets had a head of state. It was usually in the form of a king, a queen, a president, a prime minister, or a chancellor. The head of state could either be chosen by election, or by way of inheritance.

Within many intergalactic governments, politics had become very corrupted by politicians who focused on their own self-advancement and greed. This was exploited by at least two Sith Lords (Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious).
