Policy and Politics are two different words which also have different interpretations. Ordinarily, when you look into the two words, you might not see any relationship between them. But when you consider them in another direction, they might be related narrowly. Politics, by definition is a methodology and activities associated with running a government, an organization, or a movement. Politics is something practiced in a democratic system of government; it has to do with the management and the running of the public affairs of a particular territory. It comes with authority and power.

Policy, on the other hand, can be defined as a kind of formal principle, document, outline that clearly states the various operations of an establishment. Policies are important things that guide the direction of those in power. It shows different steps a government is taking towards achieving a purpose. However, policies are used in different places aside politics, they are very important in the business world or in any establishment
