Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Uncertainty deepens as Nissan and Renault search for Ghosn's successor

Selection of interim chief to be postponed as partners face off

TOKYO -- Confusion reigns over the naming of Carlos Ghosn's successor at both Nissan Motor and French partner Renault as the two automakers jockey for advantage in a post-Ghosn alliance, with the Japanese company likely delaying a decision scheduled for Monday.

The French automaker decided to keep Ghosn as its chairman at a board meeting Thursday, citing an internal investigation that found no wrongdoing by the chairman. But behind-the-scenes maneuvering is underway, with Reuters reporting that the French government has begun looking for a successor.
