Party Politics

USWP I

After his joining, the party featured tremendous growth, which allowed for a larger Congressional presence.

Yellow Party

He served from 16 November 2008 to 28 January 2009, when he resigned the position for personal reasons. Under his leadership, the Yellow Party grew ninefold, featured 77 members at its peak, and was the also the sixth largest party in the country at one point.

USWP II

He returned to the USWP after his tenure with the Yellow Party. He admired the articulate writings of Ananias and the USWP provided the opportunity to return to Congress. He ran three times during this period but was defeated in three consecutive elections despite consistently compiling the highest vote totals among those not elected.

Kennedy has abstained from party politics since his second stint in the USWP. He has continued to maintain his independent status.
