None of your options describe a repetitive act.

The best fit would be the word "repeating".

The sentence structure you used in your example can lead to ambiguity. To correct this, I would suggest a different sentence structure.

To build on your example:

The politician would periodically show up on TV to emphasize the need for Parliament to reform the economy.

The politician would occasionally show up on TV to stress the need for Parliament to reform the economy.

The politician would routinely show up on TV to articulate the need for Parliament to reform the economy.
