  • Elections to Glasgow City Council were held on 3 May 2012, the same day as the other Scottish local government elections. The election was the second using 21 new wards created as a results of the Local Governance (Scotland) Act 2004, each ward elected three or four councillors using the single transferable vote system a form of proportional representation. The election in Glasgow attracted the most attention out of the local elections in Scotland as there were many predictions that the Scottish Labour Party would lose control of the council due to losses of seats to the Scottish National Party. The Labour administration had suffered from a number of defections of council members to the newly formed Glasgow First party and controversy surrounding Councillor's salaries and contracts. In the end, Labour remained in control, losing just 1 seat, while the SNP gained 5. The Scottish Liberal Democrats were reduced to holding just 1 seat on the Council, the same numbers as the Glasgow First party and the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party who retained their solitary seat. The Scottish Green Party retained 5 seats on the authority. After the elections Labour again formed a controlling administration on the City Council. (en)
