Summary/Abstract: The objective of this paper is to review the rules on quorum and voting rights provided for by Hungarian and Romanian corporate law, as well as on the limitation and exclusion of voting rights. The voting right directly follows from the ownership over the shareholder’s share. Eligibility to vote is a subjective, exclusive, non-material and personal right. From a shareholder’s perspective, the right to vote is a legitimate assurance of risk reduction. The exercise of this right is generally granted to all shareholders, but as will be seen in this paper, in some cases the right to vote can be limited or excluded.
