Labour has taken control of Derby City Council after winning two by-elections.
The party takes over from a Liberal Democrat-Conservative coalition which led the council with the support of one Veritas councillor.
Asaf Afzal won the city's Abbey ward by 11 votes and Martin Rawson won the Derwent seat by 731 votes in the by-elections on Thursday.
Labour hold 26 seats on council with the Liberal Democrats on 13, the Conservatives with 11 and Veritas one.
Labour's Chris Williamson is expected to take over as council leader.
"We will look at where the council is spending money ... and will base our spending on the priorities from the Labour manifesto," Mr Williamson said.
Mr Afzal said: "It is the beginning for us - I believe Labour will make changes to benefit the city of Derby."
The full results in the Abbey ward were: Asaf Afzal (Lab) 1,187, David Black (UKIP) 88, Andrew Hill (Cons) 173, Michael Mullaney (Lib Dem) 1,176.
In the Derwent ward the results were Sydney Deakin (UKIP) 60, Frank Harwood (Cons) 462, Rafe Nauen (Lib Dem) 161, Martin Rawson (Lab) 1,193.
