They don’t offer their services to politicians. They are afraid of the problems it can have for them.

Politically exposed persons may not be accepted to be registered since some military dictators may instruct their bank governors to give orders to banks not to give  any money the exposed person has ln bank.This means they are not allowed  to do forex trading.

It may have something to do with laws in the country of operation as I do not remember seeing this when I signed up with my broker.

It maybe to warn the politician of money laundry.

A lot of the time it is also related to a form of insider trading. For example if you were privvy to news on a country going into a severe lockdown wouldn’t you sell the currency just before it was announced to the market!!

At some point, I thought the reason was that politicians have great advantage of success over  non-politicians

As long as I can remember, I never asked those questions when I joined two forex brokers. Does the forex broker start to ask this question just recently?

Definitely, politics has a direct bearing on currency and stock markets. I guess they want to assess, if there could be any risks

My broker doesn’t ask such. 

Leno Jean Pierre answered 2 days ago

Brokers are afraid of politicians, they can expose them to laws and put them into trouble. So they avoid all those things.
