TOKYO -- Two leading proxy advisory firms are urging Nissan Motor shareholders to vote against reappointing CEO and President Hiroto Saikawa at the June 25 general shareholders meeting, Nikkei has learned.

Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services have sent materials opposing Saikawa to clients. Saikawa was a representative director when then-Chairman Carlos Ghosn allegedly engaged in financial misconduct, Glass Lewis explained, saying it cannot confidently support him in a position of oversight over other directors.
