ALOR SETAR: Tunku Temenggong Kedah Tan Sri Tunku Sallehuddin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah (pic) has been appointed as the new Kedah Regency Council Chairman effective May 21.

Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz said the appointment has received the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, who is also the Sultan of Kedah.
