Proposal for new TeliaSonera Board members

Proposal for new TeliaSonera Board members

It is proposed that Lennart Låftman and Timo Peltola be elected as new
members of TeliaSonera's Board of Directors. Otherwise it is proposed
that the present Board members be re-elected with the exception of
Ingvar Carlsson, who has declined re-election.

Before TeliaSonera's Annual General Meeting to be held on April 28,
TeliaSonera's Nominating Committee proposes a Board of Directors with
nine regular members elected by the Annual General Meeting and no deputy
members.

The Nominating Committee proposes that Tom von Weymarn, Carl Bennet, Eva
Liljeblom, Sven-Christer Nilsson, Paul Smits, Caroline Sundewall and
Roger Talermo be re-elected and that Lennart Låftman and Timo Peltola be
elected as new Board members. Ingvar Carlsson has declined re-election.

Timo Peltola is the CEO of the packaging company Huhtamäki Oyj, and he
is the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nordea Bank AB. Timo
Peltola was born in 1946.

Lennart Låftman is currently among other things the Chairman of the
Board of Directors of Vattenfall Pension Foundation, the Foundation
Culture of the Future, the Dalademokraten newspaper and the Hasseludden
Conference Centre. Lennart Loftman was born in 1945. He has previously
been the CEO of the fund Femte AP-fonden and the financial weekly
Affärsvärlden.

The Nominating Committee proposes that remuneration be paid to the Board
of Directors as follows: SEK 750,000 to the Chairman, SEK 550,000 to the
Vice Chairman and SEK 400,000 to each of the other Board members elected
by the Annual General Meeting. In addition, it is proposed that SEK
75,000 be paid as remuneration to the Chairman of the Board's Audit
Committee and SEK 50,000 to each of the other members of the Audit
Committee. No remuneration will be paid to members employed by the
TeliaSonera Group.

The proposals will be dealt with under items 10, 11 and 12 of the agenda
of TeliaSonera's Annual General Meeting on April 28. The proposals are
supported by shareholders representing slightly more than 70 percent of
the shares and votes of TeliaSonera.

TeliaSonera's Nominating Committee is composed of Tom von Weymarn,
Chairman of the Board, and Carl Bennet, Vice Chairman of the Board.

The Swedish and Finnish States have announced their support for the re-
election of Tom von Weymarn as Chairman of the Board and Carl Bennet as
Vice Chairman of the Board after the Annual General Meeting of April 28.
