Caernarfon (National Assembly for Wales constituency)
Caernarfon was a constituency of the National Assembly for Wales from 1999 to 2007. It was one of nine constituencies in the North Wales electoral region until the abolition of the seat. The constituency elected one Assembly Member by the first past the post method, while the North Wales region elected four additional members, to produce a degree of proportional representation for the area as a whole.

The constituency was created for the first election to the Assembly, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of the Caernarfon Westminster constituency. It was entirely within the preserved county of Gwynedd.
The constituency was abolished at the 2007 election. Part of the constituency then joined the new Arfon constituency, and part the new Dwyfor Meirionnydd constituency, both constituencies entirely within the preserved county of Gwynedd. The Arfon constituency is within the North Wales electoral region. The Dwyfor Meirionnydd constituency is within the Mid and West Wales electoral region.
