The Nomination Committee of Telenor nominates shareholder representatives to the Corporate Assembly and Board of Directors. The directors of the Board are elected by the Corporate Assembly and the directors of the Corporate Assembly are elected by the General Meeting of Shareholders.

According to Telenor’s Articles of Association, the Company shall have a Nomination Committee. The tasks of the Nomination Committee are to make recommendations to:
