The company's constitution is silent other than how to issue and receive proxies. The issue of attendees is at the discretion of the chairman.
our situation is that I am the chairman and an aggressive shareholder representative (a trustee of the superfund a 5% shareholder) has failed to lodge a proxy. I expect he will come to agitate. I have 95% proxies in favour of all resolutions but I wanted to make sure that I didn't have to record any of his rants in the minutes. reason being that it wouldn't look good with pending due diligence by a potential investor.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX mellow overnight but definitely wont give him a vote. if he agitates I will evict him
thanks for the advice.

I will definitely be back when a problem next arises
