Removal of Directors

Mechanisms for Removing a Director

Shareholders can remove a director by passing an ordinary resolution at a general meeting. The director affected is able to make representations at the meeting. Shareholders also have statutory powers to call the meeting necessary to pass the resolution if the directors refuse to call it.  More information is available in the Guidance Note "Programme for Removal or Replacement of a Director" which is available to download from the links below.
