Should a member resign from the nomination committee before its work has been completed and the nomination committee considers it necessary to replace such member, such substitute member is to represent the same shareholder, or, if the shareholder is no longer one of the largest shareholders, the largest shareholder in turn. Shareholders who have appointed a representative to be a member of the nomination committee shall have the right to dismiss such member and appoint a new representative of the nomination committee.
