James Murdoch has been re-elected as the chairman of broadcaster BSkyB at the company's annual meeting.
Protesters had called for Mr. Murdoch to resign as a director of BSkyB at its session Tuesday because of his links to the phone hacking scandal at News Corp., which owns 39 per cent of the company.
The company says Mr. Murdoch won the support of 81.24 per cent of shareholder votes, while 18.76 per cent voted against him.
Mr. Murdoch has been grilled by British lawmakers about phone hacking at the now-closed News of the World newspaper.
An effort to oust him from the News Corp. board fell short last month with 35 per cent of the vote at the company's annual meeting.
