No matter how the negotiations to run Fife Coubcil go, the SNP are firmly in control in Glenrothes.
The party has the MP, MSP and now the area committee all in its portfolio.
The committee, which has been the source of many fierce debates in recent years, can now be re-shaped once more.
The nationalists saw all their established councillors safely returned, and they also claimed their number one target by ousting Bill Brown – former party member turned independent – in Glenrothes West.
Labour saw Altany Craik and Jan Wincott safely returned, while Derek Noble will be their new face round the table, but there were no seats for John Wincott or Ian Sloan.
The Tories also enjoyed local success with Michael Green in Glenrothes North.
