Carlos Ghosn m & # 39; longer the president of the Renault Nissan Alliance. The last Thursday, the Japanese manufacturer refused Mr Turco as the company's president. Few & # 39; day before, but Renault is ċaħduhx neħħah from his duties, and left the company in & # 39; Thierry Bolloré hand, the company's number two and now serves as CEO.

There was or was not a coup & # 39; state of Nissan, Carlos Ghosn to investigating for months without informing executives & # 39; Renault, the truth is that the Japanese spent & # 39; more than five years asked to have more weight in the Alliance decisions.
