Provincial elections were held in the Pakistani province of North-West Frontier Province to elect the members of the 8th Provincial Assembly of North-West Frontier Province on 10 October 2002, alongside nationwide general elections and three other provincial elections in Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab. The remaining two territories of Pakistan, AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan, were ineligible to vote due to their disputed status. The elections were held under the military government of General Pervez Musharraf.[1][2]
