How would you say Poignantly Political?

It comes up as Emocionadamente político but in this case I am referring to something impactful, meaningful or affecting.

I haven't heard poignantly used that way, but by the way you define it, I think you can use político cuntundente or político con contundencia.

Linguee suggests: conmovedor, penoso, patético, emotivo, emocionante, desgarrador, turbador, enternecedor.

However, I find it hard to use any of these words together with politics without a context.
Can you post your full sentence or tell in what situation you're using this expression, so we now for sure if Poli's suggestions work or if any of Linguee's is appropriate?
