Texas tycoon H. Ross Perot has been elevated in public esteem by avoiding the dilapidated old platforms of the Republican and Democratic parties. If he goes through with his plans for an independent campaign for the presidency, Perot has a rare chance to forge a new political movement with those who think the established parties have failed the people.In a peculiar way, Mr. Perot's candidacy has a distant echo in Texas politics. More than a hundred years ago, a group of angry farmers met in a hall in Lampasas County, Texas, and began to organize a political revolt that spread across the South and the Great Plains.

NAUDERO, Pakistan -- Benazir Bhutto left a last will and testament that maps out the future for her political party and who should lead it in her absence, her husband, Asif Zardari, disclosed yesterday. The document will be presented to her Pakistan People's Party today. It's expected to include her preference for who should lead the party in her absence. Zardari himself would be a highly controversial contender. Their son, Bilawal, would win a huge amount of goodwill but is still a teenager, and Zardari appeared to rule him out yesterday.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Police have arrested more than 300 political party workers over the past few days in a crackdown before a protest planned this week against new government curbs on the news media, a government official acknowledged yesterday.

The home secretary of Punjab, Khusro Fazal Khan, told the independent channel GEO Television that police had arrested 312 local political leaders and workers throughout the province.

KARACHI, Pakistan -- Bending to political realities, former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif abandoned his threat to boycott next month's parliamentary elections, agreeing yesterday to allow his party to compete in the Jan. 8 vote aimed at restoring democratic rule. His decision means both major opposition parties, the other headed by former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, will contest next month's vote. But the move marks an embarrassing, if not unexpected, about-face for Sharif.

LAHORE, Pakistan -- Leaders of this country's fractured political opposition began taking the first steps yesterday toward uniting against President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who is facing widespread dissent after more than a week of emergency rule. But the difficulties of overcoming internal divisions and the rigors of de facto martial law were quickly made clear during the arrest of one of Pakistan's most famous public figures, cricketer-turned-opposition politician Imran Khan, at an anti-Musharraf student rally here that broke into factional fighting.

MOSCOW -- In less than eight weeks Russia faces elections to a brand new parliament with as many as 126 different parties, movements, associations and other organizations putting forward candidates, but the outcome will hinge on the campaigns of a few key groups of reform- minded democrats.This is their election. The supporters of President Boris N. Yeltsin stand to make tremendous gains, or they could throw the opportunity away through squabbling.Following the bloody White House rebellion, the opposition is in disarray, in disrepute, or banned outright.

VIENNA, Austria -- Alarmed by the prospect of a huge influx of East European immigrants, Vienna lurched to the right in voting yesterday for a municipal legislature.The result is expected to cause strains between left and right in Austria's national coalition government, which links the conservative People's Party with the Socialists of Chancellor Franz Vranitzky.The Vienna election bolstered not only the right-wing Freedom Party and its popular leader, Joerg Haider, but also the environmental Greens, who oppose Mr. Vranitzky's goal of Austrian membership in the European Community.

PARIS -- The European Union's reaction to the Haider affair in Austria expresses fine sentiments about democracy but offends the fundamental democratic principle that the popular will, expressed in an election, deserves respect. Great pressure was placed on Austria to block the government coalition, announced last Thursday, between Joerg Haider's right-wing Austrian Freedom Party and the mainstream conservative People's Party. This was the only governing coalition on offer, since the People's Party and the Social Democrats failed to agree to form a government.

GENEVA -- Switzerland's most right-wing political party surged to stunning gains yesterday in the country's parliamentary elections, apparently capturing the largest share of the vote nationwide and raising fears that this middle-of-the-road country is following its neighbor Austria into political conservatism.Televised exit polls from the nationwide elections showed the Swiss People's Party captured an estimated 23 percent of the votes cast for the lower house, up from 15 percent in the last elections in 1995.
