Inverclyde is a parliamentary constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It replaced Greenock and Inverclyde and the Port Glasgow and Kilmacolm areas from West Renfrewshire for the 2005 general election.
The previous MP, Labour's Iain McKenzie won the ensuing Inverclyde by-election following the death of David Cairns also of the Labour Party. At the 2015 general election, the seat was gained by the SNP's Ronnie Cowan, with a majority of 11,063 votes. At the 2017 snap election, Cowan was re-elected, but with a greatly reduced majority of just 384 votes. However, at the 2019 election he significantly increased his majority to 7,512 or 18.9%, making this a safe seat for the SNP.
