The Nomination Committee of Telenor ASA is established pursuant to Telenor ASA’s Articles of Association Section 9. The Nomination Committee nominates shareholder representatives to the Corporate Assembly and Board of Directors, as well as the Nomination Committee. The members of the Board are elected by the Corporate Assembly and the members of the Corporate Assembly are elected by the General Meeting.

The tasks of the Nomination Committee are to make recommendations to:

  • the General Meeting regarding the election of shareholder-elected members and alternates to the Corporate Assembly and remuneration for the members of the Corporate Assembly;

  • the General Meeting for the election and remuneration of members of the Nomination Committee;

  • the Corporate Assembly regarding the election of shareholder-elected members and alternates to the Board of Directors, and remuneration of the Board of Directors; and
