José Guadalupe Osuna Millán is proclamated winning candidate

Local elections were held in the Mexican State of Baja California on Sunday, August 5, 2007. According to the preliminary results program, José Guadalupe Osuna Millán of the Alliance for Baja California (APBC) was elected governor by a 7% margin over candidate Jorge Hank Rohn of the Alliance for a Better Life (APVM). Results for APBC in municipalities and congressional seats were better than expected including victory for mayor of Tijuana which Jorge Hank Rohn's occupied previous to the electoral campaign.

The ruling party (National Action Party) had attempted to move the date to June as part of an electoral reform, but the Supreme Court determined that such reforms were "a serious violation to the legislative process" since the reforms were approved with "no previous discussion and analysis".[1] Also, the local council members belonging to the PAN voted against granting permission to Jorge Hank from leaving his post as municipal president and accepting a nomination as candidate for the Institutional Revolutionary Party the same day the State Electoral Institute rejected the PAN's petition to form an electoral alliance.[2] The Party of the Democratic Revolution did not reach an agreement to form an alliance with the Labor Party and Convergence[3]

Voters will go to the polls to elect, on the local level:
