The annual general meeting makes decisions on the procedure concerning the appointment of nomination committee members, along with guidelines for the work of the nomination committee on formulating proposals for the next annual general meetings. According to the Code, the nomination committee must have at least three members, and the majority of these must be independent in relation to the company and the Senior Management. At least one of the members of the nomination committee must be independent in relation to the largest shareholder in terms of votes in the Company or groups of shareholders interacting with regard to administration of the Company.
