  • The Right Honourable Lord Provost of Glasgow is the convener of the Glasgow City Council. They are elected by the city councillors and serve not only as the chair of that body, but as a figurehead for the entire city. They are equivalent in many ways to the institution of Mayor that exists in many other countries. The Lord Provost of the City of Glasgow, by virtue of office, is also: * Lord-Lieutenant of the County of the City of Glasgow * a Commissioner of Northern Lighthouses. 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 enshrined in the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. The current Lord Provost, elected to the position in 2012, is Sadie Docherty. The Lord Provost of Glasgow has the use of an official limousine which is always black and always carries the registration plate "G0". Past limousines are on display at the city's Transport Museum. The current limousine is a Volkswagen.
