The 1906 general election was held on 6 and 20 May 1906.

The elections produced an increased majority for the governing coalition between the Radicals and the left Republicans, which had held power under the premierships of Maurice Rouvier and Ferdinand Sarrien since January 1905.

Sarrien resigned on 20 October for reasons of health. Georges Clemenceau, also a Radical, replaced him, and remained premier until July 1909.
