Could suspension of nine councillors be reversed?
The first anniversary of the administration in Aberdeen also marks a year since the nine Labour councillors were suspended from the party by then-leader Kezia Dugdale.
Ms Dugdale warned against the group making a deal with the Conservatives and insisted they would face disciplinary action.
A late-night meeting of the Labour Scottish Executive Committee (SEC) had decided to issue the warning ahead of a crunch full council meeting to confirm the administration.
The Aberdeen Labour group ploughed on and joined a powersharing pact with the Tories leading to their suspension.
But the Scottish Labour line has softened since the arrival of new leader Richard Leonard who has publicly stated that some of the group are “friends”.
The SEC has confirmed their suspension is “under review” with the group given the chance to pass an “anti-austerity” budget in February. Sources have indicated the SEC will look again at the issue next month.
SNP group leader Stephen Flynn said: “This has been a running sore for Labour – and now it’s become a complete embarrassment.
“Our total focus is on the needs of the citizens of Aberdeen”
“Aberdonians should be granted an opportunity to elect candidates who will stand by the values on which they were elected.”
Aberdeen Labour leader Jenny Laing said: “Our total focus is on the needs and aspirations of the citizens of Aberdeen and moving our city forward while Councillor Flynn and his SNP colleagues are only focused on party political status.”
