I use a Mikrotik CCR1009 for distribute IPv6 from 3 tunnels with BGP upstreams.
I received 3 IPv6 fulltables and all imported.
I do not use IPv6 default route.

When I try this :
[admin@MikroTik.core] > ipv6 route print detail where dst-address=2001:4860:4864::/48
Flags: X - disabled, A - active, D - dynamic, C - connect, S - static, r - rip, o - ospf, b - bgp, U - unreachable
0 ADb dst-address=2001:4860:4864::/48 gateway=servperso gateway-status=servperso reachable distance=200 scope=40 target-scope=30
bgp-as-path="34872,15169" bgp-local-pref=100 bgp-med=0 bgp-origin=igp received-from=Servperso

1 Db dst-address=2001:4860:4864::/48 gateway=openfactory gateway-status=openfactory reachable distance=20 scope=40 target-scope=10
bgp-as-path="41051,6939,15169" bgp-origin=igp bgp-communities="" received-from=openfactory

2 Db dst-address=2001:4860:4864::/48 gateway=vultr gateway-status=vultr reachable distance=200 scope=40 target-scope=30
bgp-as-path="64515,65534,20473,15169" bgp-local-pref=100 bgp-origin=igp bgp-communities=64515:44 received-from=Vultr

Only the first is active ; problem is the routeur always use first peer and don't knwo why.

Thanks in advance for help

Best Regards,

Because BGP is designed to use only one best path by default.
