Independent 3, Independent Councillors Group 2, Alba 2. Largest council in Scotland; historic shipbuilding on the River Clyde. Some working class parts of the city are infamously poor but give a misleading impression about the rest.

Martin Bartos (Partick East/Kelvindale) moved from Scottish Green Party to Independent in May 2021. John Letford (Maryhill) moved from Scottish National Party to Alba Party in April 2021. The Independent Councillors group split into two groups of two in March 2021. Michelle Ferns (Shettleston) moved from Scottish National Party to Alba in March 2021. At byelections on 18 March, Labour gained a seat from the Conservatives in Partick East/Kelvindale and the Scottish National Party gained a seat from Labour in Baillieston.
