It is said that Jehovah’s Witnesses do not involve in politics. True?

For those who know them, it goes without saying: Jehovah Witnesses cannot register to vote. In fact, they do not involve in politics, their religion forbids it.

Their website ( is clear on that point: “Jehovah’s Witnesses remain politically neutral for religious reasons, based on what the Bible teaches. We do not lobby, vote for political parties or candidates, run for government office, or participate in any action to change governments. We believe that the Bible gives solid reasons for following this course”.

So, their position has a biblical foundation. “We follow the example of Jesus, who refused to accept political office. (John 6:15) He taught his disciples to be “no part of the world” and made it clear that they should not take sides in political issues.—John 17:14, 16; 18:36; Mark 12:13-17”, the FAQ section of their website read.
