TORONTO May 6 (Reuters) - Canadian miner Sherritt International Corp's management board nominees were all elected at the company's shareholder meeting on Tuesday, and no dissident nominees won spots on the board after a months-long proxy fight.

A group of activist investors led by investment holding company Clarke Inc had put forward a slate of nominees for Sherritt's board, including Clarke Chief Executive George Armoyan. (Reporting by Euan Rocha; Writing by Allison Martell)
