  • Elections to Perth and Kinross Council were held on 3 May 2012, the same day as the other Scottish local government elections. The election used the twelve wards created as a result of the Local Governance (Scotland) Act 2004, with each ward electing three or four councillors using the single transferable vote system a form of proportional representation, with 41 Councillors being elected. The Council was previously controlled by a Liberal Democrat/Scottish National Party coalition administration from 2007-2012. The 2012 elections saw the SNP remain the main party by a significant margin but they did not make further advances. Both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats lost seats to Independents who returned to the Council having been wiped out in 2007. Following the election a Scottish National Party minority administration took over the running of the Council with the support of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party. (en)
