When will they add an edit question feature (politics)?
And allow selecting multiple topics.

edit question feature ? Never
Back when yahoo was not yet sold, they explicitly allowed you to post the same question in 2 or 3 appropriate categories at the same time - they said so in the (old) suggestion-board. This rule has not been changed

Editing a question would be nice because of typos and grammar errors, but sadly trolls would abuse the feature, as Mercury said.
Having a question show up in multiple topics would require a lot of changes to the site (ex: removing ability to move questions) before that could be done.

Probably never. The problem with editing a question is that it gives trolls more tools to play with and can undermine the Q&A system. Imagine a scenario like this:
Question: Who was the 44th president of the united states?
Then someone edits the question: Who was the worst president of the united states?
so now you have all these people who answered the question incorrectly because of a troll.
You can always update and add info to a question but never edit it.
Selecting multiple topics would make sense but probably would be too complicated given how they built YA
