Glasgow Provan is a constituency of the Scottish Parliament (Holyrood), being one of eight constituencies within the Glasgow City council area. It elects one Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) by the plurality (first past the post) method of election. It is also one of nine constituencies in the Glasgow electoral region, which elects seven additional members, in addition to the nine constituency MSPs, to produce a form of proportional representation for the region as a whole.

The constituency was created in 2011, comprising much of the old Glasgow Baillieston seat which was abolished for the 2011 Scottish Parliament election.

The seat has been held by Ivan McKee of the Scottish National Party since the 2016 Scottish Parliament election.
