A referendum on extending President Saparmurat Niyazov's term until 2002 was held in Turkmenistan on 15 January 1994. Niyazov had originally been elected unopposed in 1990, and re-elected unopposed in 1992, winning over 98% of the vote on both occasions. Official results showed that the proposal was approved by 99.9% of voters, with turnout reported to be exactly 100% of the 1,959,637 registered voters.
However, elections were not held in 2002, as Niyazov was declared President for life by the Assembly on 28 December 1999. He subsequently ruled until his death in 2006.
