Everything you need to know about Glasgow’s six constituencies ahead of Thursday’s election

Everything you need to know about Glasgow’s six constituencies ahead of Thursday’s election

When voters in Glasgow go to the polls on Thursday, they will elect six MPs to represent the city in Westminster.

Since 2015, when it won several seats in the city, the SNP has been the dominant party after years of Labour success.




A Labour MP was elected in 2017 – when Paul Sweeney narrowly defeated Anne McLaughlin in Glasgow North East – but in the 2019 vote the SNP won all seven of the city’s constituencies.

The boundary changes mean Glasgow now has six electoral districts: Glasgow East, Glasgow North, Glasgow North East, Glasgow West, Glasgow South and Glasgow South West.

The Glasgow Central constituency has been abolished. Alison Thewliss, who was the SNP MP for Glasgow Central, is seeking election in Glasgow North, where Patrick Grady is not standing again.

All the other SNP MPs elected in 2019 — David Linden, Anne McLaughlin, Stewart McDonald, Chris Stephens and Carol Monaghan — are hoping to regain their seats.
