Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Five things to know ahead of Nissan's shareholders meeting

Tensions rise as Renault seeks greater influence in Japanese partner's governance

Shareholders will vote on Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa's  reappointment as director on June 25. 

TOKYO -- Nissan Motor will put its governance reform plan to a vote at its 120th annual general shareholders meeting on Tuesday. The reforms are intended to prevent the kind of concentration of power seen under former chairman Carlos Ghosn.

Nissan and its biggest shareholder, French automaker Renault, initially butted heads over the reforms, but the latter is now expected to give its approval after securing greater representation on new governance committees to be set up under the plan.
