He needs a majority to agree to accept. He needs 7 to reject. Big difference.
He clearly does not have the power as the owners hold the stick. He can be fired by a simple majority. If he only had 7 owners in support, I am pretty sure dismissal would be on the table. It would make no sense for him to be carrying the banner for a small minority.
