VIENNA Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim's America Movil (AMXL.MX) has proposed expanding Telekom Austria's (TELA.VI) supervisory board by a seat and filling it with one of its top executives, Oscar Von Hauske Solis, the Austrian telecoms group said on Monday.

Slim last month closed the deal to buy investor Ronny Pecik's 16 percent stake in Telekom Austria.
