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.
