A parliamentary election was held in Guinea on 30 June 2002 after several postponements, over two years after it was originally scheduled to be held. It was won by President Lansana Conté's Unity and Progress Party, which won 61.57% of the vote and 85 of the 114 seats.
Radical opposition parties, including the Guinean People's Rally (RPG) and the Union of Forces for the Republic, chose to boycott the election, believing that it would be a farce. There were 4,458,871 registered voters at the time of the election, and turnout was placed at 72.47%. The PUP won all of the 38 seats that were decided in single-member constituencies, as well as another 47 seats through proportional representation.
In addition to the 85 seats won by the PUP, the Democratic Party of Guinea (PDG) and the National Alliance for Progress (ANP), which also supported President Conté, won a few seats (three for the PDG, one for the ANP). The opposition Union for the Progress of Guinea (UPG) disputed the results and refused to take up the three seats that it won in the election.
