Arguello in a special election for an Assembly seat in a heavily Latino San Gabriel Valley district. Chu had failed twice before to capture the seat, losing both races to Latinas, but the third time was the charm, with Chu capturing 58.5% of the vote, compared to 33.7% for Arguello.

It is widely assumed that the presidential election will have an impact on the implementation of police reform in Los Angeles. Because Gov. George W. Bush has often stated his opposition to consent decrees similar to the one negotiated with Los Angeles by the U.S. Department of Justice, some have suggested that a Bush administration would ease or remove the pressure from Washington that led to the city's agreement.

A Times analysis of campaign contributions in the Los Angeles mayor's race shows that big donors are using loosely regulated "super PACs" to help candidates like never before. The Times has created an interactive graphic that allows readers to break down how the money is flowing to the candidates and from where. Of the $17.5 million collected so far to support mayoral hopefuls Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti , roughly one-third - a record $6.1 million - has gone into independent political action committees that can accept contributions of any size.

The debates about whether to revise the roles of the controller and city attorney keep sputtering. There's still disagreement on the best form of neighborhood representation. There's the problem that some negotiations aimed at reaching major public decisions are being held in secret.

After months of street protests that produced few results, Serbia's opposition leaders switched strategies Thursday, with a rare show of unity behind basic demands for early elections. Adversaries of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic don't expect him to accept their demands, which include international supervision and other measures to ensure that any vote is free and fair, said Slobodan Vuksanovic, vice president of the Democratic Party.

Can Los Angeles be made more livable? Can it meet air-quality standards? Create safer and cleaner workplaces? Eliminate myriad environmental hazards in its most economically stressed neighborhoods? Turn vacant lands in the inner city into community gathering places? Re-envision a true river running from one end of the L.A. Basin to the other? The upcoming campaigns for mayor and the City Council will be a good starting point for the discussion. Los Angeles is ready to be reinvented.

Ugandans voted Friday in an election that saw President Yoweri Museveni seeking a fourth term after 25 years in power and his rival Kizza Besigye vowing a parallel vote count to guard against fraud. Museveni, 66, is widely expected to win another five years in office, with final results expected Sunday. But Besigye has announced plans to try to whip up Egypt-style protest rallies if the election is seen as tainted. There was a heavy police and military presence in many parts of the country, and clashes between opposition supporters and police were reported in some districts.
