From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Presidential elections were held in the Republic of Iraq on October 16, 2002, the second under the rule of Saddam Hussein (the first having taken place in 1995). Due to official statistics, the turnout was 100 %, with all 11,445,638 Iraqis registered as voting on election day, all as having elected "yes" in a simple referendum whether to let Saddam Hussein stay in power for a period of another seven years. The elections were overshadowed by the prelude to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, effectively toppling Baath party rule.
