At the invitation of the Government of Pakistan, the European Union established a mission to observe the national and provincial elections there on 10 October 2002.

The observation team was – at that time – the largest sent by the European Union. The mission was led by Chief Observer John Cushnahan, member of the European Parliament.

The observers were deployed throughout the country. They met government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.
