Elected members

Moray Council has a Conservative-Independent Administration. 

The Convener is Councillor James Allan (Scottish Conservative & Unionist) and the Leader is Councillor George Alexander (Independent)

The number of seats held by each party:

  • Independent - 7
  • Scottish National Party - 9
  • Labour - 1
  • Scottish Conservative and Unionist - 9

There are 26 elected members in Moray Council. They're elected when the public vote at local government elections.


The Convener is the Civic Head of the Council. Already elected by the public, he or she is then elected by other councillors to become Convener.

Leader of the Council

The Leader of the Council is an elected member who has been selected by Members of the Council.

The responsibilities of the Leader of the Council transcend those of individual members of the Council – and the particular service responsibilities of other individual Chairs – and extend to corporate responsibility for the vision, policies, strategies and consequent decisions of the whole Council.
