Political suicide is the concept that a politician or political party would lose widespread support and confidence from the voting public by proposing actions that are seen as unfavourable or that might threaten the status quo. A politician who is seen as having committed political suicide might be forced to resign from external public pressure (such as the threat of civil unrest), or internal pressure from superiors or colleagues. A political party as a whole could also lose much of its public support by deviating greatly from its core values and policies from which the party was founded on.
