The Alliance for Mexico (Spanish: Alianza por México) is the name of two different multi-party electoral alliances in Mexico, one from 2000 and the other from 2006.

2000 elections[edit]

In the 2000 general election, Alliance for Mexico was a grouping of the Party of the Democratic Revolution, the Labor Party, the Party of the Nationalist Society, Convergence for the Democracy (founded by ex-PRI dissidents) and the Party of Social Action (founded by remnants of the Mexican synarchist movement). Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas ran as its candidate for president of Mexico and won 17 percent of the vote. The Alliance also won 68 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 17 seats in the Senate.

2006 elections[edit]

This alliance chose Roberto Madrazo as its candidate for president. On February 17, 2006, it extended the electoral alliance to the elections in the PAN-governed state of Querétaro, where the positions of 15 state deputies were to be elected on July 2.
