Chiapas state election, 2006
Five candidates registered as candidates to fight the election. However, on August 10, Francisco Rojas Toledo of the National Action Party and Emilio Zebadúa of New Alliance announced that they were withdrawing from the election and throwing their support behind the Institutional Revolutionary Party's José Antonio Aguilar Bodegas in order to present a united front to prevent Juan José Sabines Guerrero, representing the Alliance for the Good of All and a protégé of incumbent governor Pablo Salazar Mendiguchía, from winning. Rojas and Zebadúa called on their supporters to vote for Aguilar Bodegas instead;  however, their names still appeared on the ballot papers and votes were cast for both — in amounts greater than the difference between the two leading candidates.
|Alliance for the Good of All (PRD, PT, CD)||Juan José Sabines Guerrero||553,270 (46.98%)|
|Alliance for Chiapas (PRI & PVEM)||José Antonio Aguilar Bodegas||546,988 (46.45%)|
|National Action Party||Francisco Rojas Toledo||29,476 (2.50%)|
|Social Democratic and Farmer Alternative||Gilberto Gómez Maza||6,395 (0.54%)|
|New Alliance||Emilio Zebadúa||3,472 (0.30%)|
The final result will not be known until the state Electoral Institute has resolved the large number of result review filings that were lodged, chiefly by the PRI-led Alliance for Chiapas.
