1995 to 2007 single-member wardsEdit

From 1999 until the 2007 election, there were 79 councillors elected from 79 small single-member wards[31] by the plurality (first past the post) system of election. The result from this system in 2003 was 69 of the 79 councillors representing the Labour Party, although that party gained only around half the votes cast in the election to the council, and the Scottish National Party represented by just four councillors, despite gaining some 20% of the votes. There were also three Liberal Democrat councillors, one from the Conservative party, and one from the Scottish Socialist Party.[32]

The earlier election returns were even more skewed in terms of seats versus overall vote share due to the voting system in use: in 1999 council election result, Labour received 74 seats (94%) from 49% of the vote and the SNP received two seats from 29% vote share.[33] In the first GCC election in 1995, which included 83 wards,[34] Labour won 77 (93%) of the seats from approximately 62% of the overall vote, while the SNP's 23% overall vote share gave them only one seat.[35]
