The 2012 Cardiff Council election took place on Thursday 3 May 2012 to elect members of Cardiff Council in Wales.[1] This was the same day as the national 2012 Welsh local elections.[2] It was preceded by the 2008 election and followed by the 2017 election

Election result[edit]

Labour gained control of the council from the Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru, after gaining 32 seats.[3] The Liberal Democrat leader of the council, Rodney Berman, lost his seat by 51 votes after two recounts,[4] bringing Labour's gains to 33. Sixty-one-year-old Labour councillor Heather Joyce, nicknamed 'Supernan' by the local newspaper, became the new council leader.[5]
