Media reports in Paris say that Renault plans to hold a board meeting to discuss its alliance with Nissan.

The meeting comes after the French government increased its voting rights in Renault and raised its stake to 19.7% from 15%. The government move was opposed by Renault and Nissan.

Renault has confirmed that a board meeting is expected today.

Reuters noted that Carlos Ghosn, who is chief executive of both carmakers, may lead any discussions about how the Renault-Nissan Alliance moves forward.

In recent months Ghosn has appeared to dampen down the possibility of discord or disagreement within the Alliance, or any counter move to alter the capital alliance. Analysts have speculated that Paris is interested in increasing its say in the running of Renault, amid reports that some inside Renault are becoming concerned about ‘Nissanisation’.
