The Elections to the Aragonese Corts, 1987 were the second democratic elections to the Aragonese Corts, the Argonese regional parliament, in Spain since the death of the dictator Franco and were held on 10 June of that year. The elections were held using closed list proportional representation in three electoral districts corresponding to each of the three Provinces of Aragon. Seats were allocated on a Provincial basis using the D'Hondt method of allocation. Only lists which polled at least 3% of the total votes in a particular province (including votes "en blanco" i.e. for "none of the above") were eligible for seats in that province. The total number of seats was 67, an increase of one seat. This made impossible the situation that had occurred at the previous elections where the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) had won exactly half the seats. With a total number of 67 seats, Zaragoza elected 33 members (an increase of one seat compared to 1983), Huesca 18 and Teruel 16.
The main two national parties, the PSOE and the Popular Alliance lost support compared to the previous elections. The main gainers were theAragonese Party (PAR), a regionalist party which had been allied with the Popular Alliance (AP) in the 1982 General Election, and the Democratic and Social Centre (CDS), a party led by the former Spanish Prime Minister Adolfo Suarez.
The loss of support for the PSOE meant that the socialist Santiago Marraco was not re-elected as President of Aragon. Instead Hipólito Gómez de las Roces of the PAR was elected President as head of a PAR administration with the support of the AP and the abstention of the CDS. In March 1989 the PAR and AP formed a coalition for the remainder of the legislature with AP members appointed Ministers in the regional administration.
