"There is nothing to do with the shareholdings and the cross-shareholdings that are still there and still in place", Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard said at a news conference.
The Japanese automaker was on the verge of bankruptcy 20 years ago, when Renault sent Ghosn to help lead its turnaround.
As Renault now owns 44 per cent of Nissan's voting stock, it is legally capable of nominating whoever it wants to the role of chairman.

He is also only allowed restricted access to the use of mobile phones and computers under his bail agreement.
Former Alliance Chairman Carlos Ghosn was barred from attending the board meeting by a Tokyo judge.
The Tokyo District Court on Monday declined to temporarily suspend a condition of Ghosn's bail that stops him from meeting people linked to his case, blocking what would have been a dramatic face off between the once-feted executive and the colleagues he has accused of fomenting a coup.
Qoros also hired former Nissan managers to take up other management roles including operations and development.
The other charge relates to an alleged attempt to pass off personal investment losses onto Nissan's books and then paying from company funds a Saudi contact who had previously stumped up collateral for him.More news: Police Captures Guy With AK-47 In Westpalm Florida

He was also replaced as chairman of Renault SA in the three-way alliance he created after he tendered his resignation while in detention in Tokyo.

Nissan has no voting rights as far as Renault is concerned.
Ghosn owns more than 3 million Nissan shares, or somewhat less than 0.1 percent of total shares, according to the most recent disclosure. It also owns a 34-percent stake in Mitsubishi Motors Corp.More news: FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Severe storms possible this afternoon & evening
