In Forth Ward there are four councillor positions and only two of those elected in 2017 are standing again – Labour’s Cammy Day and Conservative Jim Campbell.
Eleanor Bird stepped down from politics and George Gordon was not reselected by the SNP.
Conservative councillor Jim Campbell was a casualty here, despite attracting 15.1% of the first preference votes. Cllr Cammy Day is the leader of the Edinburgh Labour Group which is now the second largest on the council. Whether a formal coalition or some other arrangement is made remains to be seen as “chats” between group leaders begin on Saturday.
- The electorate totals 24,934
- Votes cast 10,733
- Turnout 43%
