HFSF says may call extraordinary shareholders meeting on NBG chairman

Greece’s bank rescue fund HFSF said on Wednesday it may call an extraordinary shareholders meeting at the National Bank of Greece (NBG) to discuss the appointment of the bank’s new chairman, Panayotis Thomopoulos earlier in the day.

In its press release, HFSF says its representative at the bank’s board meeting voted against Thomopoulos in today’s selection, an action that it says is consistent with the previous decision of the HFSF’s General Council.
“HFSF […] is considering calling an extraordinary General Meeting taking into account that the smooth cooperation between the bank’s board of Directors and the main shareholder is essential,” the fund said.
