The North Ayrshire Council in a new guise has appointed its own head and deputy head, who will take over over the next five years.
The council leader will be Marie Burns of the SNP, an adviser to Irwin East.
Claire Burns did not speak out without opposition after receiving a nomination from Claire Sean Macaulay, backed by Alan Hill.
The deputy leader was also SNP, an adviser to Irwin West, Sean Macaulay, who was nominated by Chief Davidson, who was seconded to Cllr Hill.
He also ran for office without controversy.
This confirms the SNP’s previous plans to run the North Ayrshire Council as a minority party, without coalitions formed by themselves or anyone else.
New leader Marie Burns will replace former leader and current adviser to Scottish Labor and Kilvingen cooperatives Joe Cullinan. She thanked the outgoing head for his work.
She said: “In particular, in the last two years, he has taken us through the difficult times of Kovid and recovery.”
Sean Macaulay will take on the role previously played by John Bell of the Scottish Labor Party.
