qui ne sont plus au pouvoir


Explanation:
I agree with the 2nd contributor that the politicians in question have not necessarily withdrawn from power voluntarily.
If they are" out of power" I think we can assume they were once in power. Perhaps they were "écartés" or "chassés", perhaps they did retire.We can't tell. On the other hand, "à l'écart du pouvoir" suggests to me not only that the politicians are on the sidelines but also that perhaps they have never been in power.
With all that in mind, I have aimed for the most neutral possible translation. I hope it helps.
