A constitutional referendum was held in Tunisia on 26 May 2002. The amendments to the constitution would abolish the three-term limit for incumbent presidents and raise the age limit of a sitting president from 70 to 75.[1] A second parliamentary chamber (Chamber of Advisors) was introduced.

The changes were reportedly approved by 99.52% of voters, with a 95.59% voter turnout,[2] but the results were denounced by the opposition as a masquerade.[1]
