Gubernatorial election[edit]

Nine political parties participated in the 2007 Yucatán state election, originally three parties (PRD, C and PT) decided to run together as a coalition but on February 11, 2007, the PRD decided to withdraw their support to the Convergence-Labor Party candidate.

After losing the candicacy in the PAN primaries, Ana Rosa Payán accepted the candidacy for the Todos Somos Yucatán coalition. 15 members of the PAN were also incarcerated after removing advertising material supporting non-PAN candidates[1] and for exchanging cash for voting cards.[2]

Opposition parties had accused both the federal and state governments of using public funds and publicly funded programs to support the PAN candidate. In response to this issue, the federal government decided to freeze all social programs on May 14, 2007, until after the elections.[3]
