Tesla will soon vote on a proposal to remove Elon Musk as chairman and install an independent director in his place.

The proposal, to be held at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders on June 5, was submitted by shareholder Jing Zhao, citing conflicts of interest with Musk’s other businesses and his relationship with SolarCity.

“An independent chairman of the board of directors is the prevailing practice in the international market, such as in the United Kingdom, “ read Zhao’s proposal. “In the United States too, many big companies already have or began to have an independent Board Chairman. Tesla should not be exception.”

In turn, Tesla’s board has encouraged shareholders to vote no, citing the role of lead independent director Antonio Gracias in resolving issues that may arise as a result having a non-independent chairman.

“The company’s success to date would not have been possible if the board was led by another director lacking Elon Musk’s day-to-day exposure” to Tesla’s business,” wrote the board in its proxy statement.

Other proposals are also to be voted on, including the reelection of 3 board members, establishing its independent public accounting firm, and ones submitted by shareholders.

At the moment, Musk acts as CEO and chairman, owning roughly 22 percent of the company’s shares with a 2017 salary of $49,420. His other positions include executive leadership roles at The Boring Company, SpaceX, and SolarCity. In mid-March, shareholders also approved a 10-year, $2.6-billion compensation plan awarding Musk based on completion of market cap milestones, with no guaranteed pay in salary, bonuses, or stock if the company does not meet them.
