Top shareholder's candidate for chairman elected to Danske Bank board

COPENHAGEN, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Danske Bank shareholders elected Karsten Dybvad, who was proposed by top shareholder A. P. Moller Holding as the bank's new chairman, to the board at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on Friday.
