Nissan board to appoint new chairman on Dec 17 after Ex-Chair

The board of directors of Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor will appoint the company's new chairman at a meeting on December 17 following the recent resignation and arrest of its ex-chairman Carlos Ghosn, the Jiji Press news agency reported.

Company's acting CEO Hiroto Saikawa has many chances to be appointed to this post, though, still on a temporary basis, according to the Jiji Press news agency.

The statement comes after Nissan Motor confirmed on 22 November that its board of directors dismissed Ghosn as its chairman and also voted to remove senior executive Greg Kelly.

On 25 November, media reported about the first testimony of Ghosn, who told the investigators that he had no intention of concealing his income.
