NEW YORK (Reuters) - Morgan Stanley said on Tuesday that more than 95 percent of shares voted to approve its executive compensation packages and that all of its directors were elected at the bank's annual shareholder meeting in Purchase, New York.

More than 89 percent of shareholders voted no on a proposal that the bank report annually on its lobbying efforts, according to preliminary tallies.
