Independent candidates or candidates of the Human Rights Union Party (HRUP), when that party ran alone without a coalition with other political formations, are not classified as belonging to a political direction.

 According to ODA research analysis, Independent candidates or candidates of the Human Rights Union Party (HRUP), when that party ran alone without a coalition with other political formations, won, respectively: in the 2000 local government elections 10 seats or 3.25 per cent; in the 2003 local government elections, 15 seats or 4.87 per cent; in the 2007 local government elections won 25 communes or 8.12 per cent; and in the 2011 local government elections, 19 communes or 6.17 per cent.

The local elections of 2000 and 2011 were characterized by two special elements. In 2000 the Democratic Party and its allies withdrew from participating in the second run-off, considering the counting process of the first run-off as irregular. In the 2011 local government elections, political parties were organized in mixed coalitions in terms of political direction. Thus, the Socialist Movement for Integration, the Democratic Alliance and the Environmental Agrarian Party ran under the coalition Alliance for the Citizen (a right wing coalition), while in the other local government elections they had previously run as left-wing parties. The same phenomenon was observed in the other coalition, the Alliance for the Future (a left wing coalition) with which the Christian Democrat Party was aligned; in previous elections for local government it had been part of the right-wing coalition.
