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 other United Kingdom local elections. 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.[2] The Liberal Democrat leader of the council, Rodney Berman, lost his seat by 51 votes after two recounts,[3] 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.[4]
