What's the purpose of NMP?

Recently I just read another interesting forum post on the topic of Nominated Members of Parliament. The issue was that the writer feels that NMPs should not join political parties after their term has ended.

Personally though, I think it really depends on the reason for the existence of NMPs. If one of the objectives is for people to understand how government works and to entice them to join their ranks, then NMPs should be free to join any political parties after their term has ended.

I would think that this should be one of the aims, other than providing alternate views. Personally, I do not think there is any reason why an NMP should be prohibited from joining any political party after their term has ended. It's their right.
