By way of a small clarification, Nueva Alianza did run a candidate in '06: Roberto Campa, who completely disappeared from the spotlight after the election.
Nueva Alianza getting enought votes to keep registration is bad enough news, but I agree that their resulting bargaining position is just terrible.

(Slaps forehead.) That's right. He was the guy who campaigned for any vote for the party, right? "Don't vote for me, just give us a vote for, you know, any office," or something.

I haven't looked at the data but maybe its related to the butterfly ballot like way of voting in Mexico? In districts where the PVEM and the PRI did not form a coalition there were probably a lot of null votes because people got confused and voted for two candidates.
