Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. There is no requirement that the directors of a limited company must be appointed by the directors. Instead, under section 144, it is provided that the first directors should be appointed by the general meeting of a company, with subsequent directors also being appointed by general meeting with provision for the directors to appoint other directors should they see fit. So, once the initial directors are appointed, then subsequent directors may be appointed by general meeting or the directors may appoint other directors should they see fit. But there is no requirement that the directors MUST appoint them. Additionally, a directors term as a director only lasts until the subsequent general meeting when they must put themselves up for re-election.
