CAIRO - The leader of Egypt's largest Islamist ultraconservative party announced Tuesday that he is forming a new political party, splitting from the Salafi Al-Nour, which has emerged as the country's second-strongest political group. The new party is part of a proliferation of religion-based political parties. Another prominent ultraconservative TV preacher, who was a presidential candidate, has also announced plans to form a new party. The plans come just two months before President Mohammed Morsi is expected to call for new parliamentary elections.

Whatever your view of Pat Buchanan's politics, you can't help appreciating his candor. He takes the stage at Lehigh University in Bethlehem and is about to give his wife, Shelley, a standard campaign introduction as "The next first. . . " But he stops himself before he gets there. He chuckles at the absurdity of how the words would have sounded, given the current state of his candidacy. So he introduces her instead as "still a longshot to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton. " This is Buchanan's third presidential campaign, his first in the general election and his most ineffectual.

Straightening his tie and mopping his sodden brow, Jack Trinsey counted down the seconds to high noon. With the hallowed Memorial Arch as his backdrop, Trinsey - the political gadfly whose court action has at least temporarily halted the Nov. 5 election to replace the late U.S. Sen. John Heinz - announced yesterday to three reporters and a passing stream of puzzled Fourth of July celebrants that he was forming his own political party. At the stroke of noon, Trinsey declared himself national chairman, executive director, president, secretary and treasurer of what he dubbed the Valley Forge Party.

With his dramatic decision to bolt the right-of-center Likud Party he cofounded in 1973, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon chose the riskiest of the difficult options open to him after his ruling coalition fell apart this week. His choice has strong overtones of the recent Gaza pullout, in which Sharon, an architect of the settlement movement, turned around and ordered settlements removed. First he builds it. Then he tears it down. Sharon's main political problem is that while he is broadly popular in Israel, there is a hard-line faction within his party that feels betrayed by the Gaza pullout and that has obstructed Sharon's ability to govern.

Renewing his call for direct presidential elections and widespread democratic reforms, opposition leader Kim Young Sam yesterday formally inaugurated a new, hard-line opposition party at a small meeting hall heavily guarded by soldiers and police. Kim, who broke from the moderate New Korea Democratic Party (NKDP) in early April, used the inaugural meeting of the Reunification Democratic Party (RDP) to threaten a boycott of scheduled presidential elections in December if President Chun Doo Hwan refuses to give in on the issue of a direct vote.

A new political party is forming in Montgomery County - a party in which fiscal responsibility is the central plank. At a convention tonight at the Holiday Inn in King of Prussia, the month- old Patriot Party - whose organizers include many of those who campaigned for Ross Perot for president last year - will choose its first county committee. The convention, to begin at 7 p.m., will be a first for the new party, said B. Jay Bagdis, a Blue Bell attorney who is interim county chairman.

The announcement Wednesday by New Jersey Democrat Bill Bradley that he will not seek a second term in the Senate brought to mind another recent retirement announcement - that of Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan. If you believed that Jordan would never again slam-dunk a basketball then you probably buy the idea that Bradley will retreat into the genteel oblivion of senior statesmanship and content himself to write meaty articles for Foreign Affairs and other weighty journals. Those blessed with more imagination know that Bradley is after nothing less than the reinvention of the Democratic Party.

Before Japan's parliamentary elections on Sunday, the country was run for four decades by the Liberal Democratic Party, which raked in money from corporate donors opposed to foreign competition and kowtowed to protectionist bureaucrats. Since Sunday, the key to Japan's future lies with the populist New Party, whose leader Morihiro Hosokawa calls for opening up Japanese markets and cleaning up Japanese politics. The New Party didn't win enough seats to take power, but it controls the pivotal bloc that will decide who forms the next government.

Lionel Kunst is the kind of bred-in-the-bone Democrat that party officials usually love to meet while canvassing precincts. "Are you kidding?" says the 69-year-old Kansas City businessman. "I was raised a Democrat, I voted for Roosevelt and my son's name is Adlai. If I'd had a second son, his name probably would have been Hubert. " But Kunst is not backing Democrat Bill Clinton this year. He's supporting Ross Perot, and is hoping fervently that the Perot crusade produces a new political party.

Peace has broken out among Chester's warring Democrats. Or maybe it's safer to call it a cease-fire. At a ceremony yesterday to open a new party headquarters in the city, seven of eight Democratic candidates were on hand, pledging to put aside finger- pointing and to support one another in the election Nov. 2. The eighth candidate, District Justice hopeful Elizabeth Williams, is also supporting the united slate. At the ribbon-cutting, Democratic State Rep. Thaddeus Kirkland and Chester Democratic Party Chairman Jim Harper, who have frequently clashed, also publicly endorsed all the candidates.

An offshoot of New York state's Working Families Party has been striving under the radar for the last six months to push Philadelphia-area politics and policy leftward. Pennsylvania Working Families helped win voter approval May 20 of a City Charter change requiring city subcontractors to pay their workers a "living wage" above the federal minimum. And last week, its canvassers turned in just under 40,000 petition signatures to put a nonbinding resolution on the November ballot demanding an end to state control of Philadelphia schools.

JERUSALEM - The unexpectedly strong showing by a new centrist party in Israel's parliamentary election has raised hopes of a revival of peace talks with Palestinians that have languished for four years under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Political newcomer Yair Lapid, the surprise kingmaker, is already being courted by a weakened Netanyahu, who needs his support to form a ruling coalition. Lapid has said he will not sit in the government unless the peace process is restarted. But following a campaign in which the Palestinian issue was largely ignored, it remains unclear how hard Lapid will push the issue in what could be weeks of coalition talks with Netanyahu.

By Jonathan Zimmerman The convention season is upon us! Starting with the Republican National Convention next week, followed by the Democrats' the week after, Americans will watch with bated breath as the parties decide their nominations for president. Actually, those decisions were made months ago. The real mystery is why anyone watches the conventions - and why we need them at all. The standard answer is that the conventions allow the parties and their nominees to define themselves on the national stage.

HAVANA - Fidel Castro's surprise announcement that he stepped down as head of the Communist Party five years ago - despite the widespread belief that he remained in charge - marks the bizarre end of an era for a nation and a man whose fates have been intertwined for more than half a century. The 84-year-old revolutionary icon made the revelation Tuesday - with word of the resignation thrown in as an aside halfway through an opinion piece that otherwise focused on President Obama. The declaration raises fundamental questions about just how much power Fidel has been wielding behind the scenes since his 2006 illness, and to what extent his 79-year-old brother Raul has had freedom to make decisions as he pushed the country to enact sweeping economic reforms.
