A defector is basically a person in politics who gives up his own political party and join other alliance for benefit. This term is also applied, often pejoratively, to anyone who switches loyalty to another religion, sports team, political party, or other rival faction. In that sense, the defector is often considered a traitor by his original side. 
Hence, option is the correct answer.
