The Right Honourable Lord Provost of Glasgow is the convener of the Glasgow City Council. Elected by the city councillors, the Lord Provost serves not only as the chair of that body, but as a figurehead for the entire city.[1] The office is equivalent in many ways to the institution of mayor that exists in the cities of many other countries.

The Lord Provost of the City of Glasgow, by virtue of office, is also:

Each of the 32 Scottish local authorities elects a provost, but it is only the four main cities, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee that have a Lord Provost, who also serves as the lord-lieutenant for the city. This is codified in the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. As of 2017, the role attracts an salary of £41,546, plus an annual expenses budget of £5000.[2]

The most recent Lord Provost of Glasgow, elected to the position in May 2017, was Eva Bolander,[3][2] the first Scottish National Party councillor to hold the post and the first EU migrant (she was born and raised in Sweden, moving to Scotland in the mid 1990s).[4] On 31 October 2019, Bolander resigned, commenting that it would be in the city's "best interests" for her to do so after a controversy over her expenses;[5] she faced criticism after claiming £8,000 worth of items during her time in the position.[2]

The Lord Provost of Glasgow has the use of an official limousine which is always black and always carries the registration plate "G0".[6] Past limousines are on display at the city's Transport Museum. The current limousine is a Rolls Royce Ghost, donated by Boyd Tunnock in 2018.[2]

List of provosts and lord provosts
