ALOR SETAR: Tunku Temenggong of Kedah Tan Sri Tunku Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah has been appointed Kedah Council of Regency chairman, replacing the late Tan Sri Tunku Annuar Sultan Badlishah effective May 21.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said Sultan of Kedah Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah consented to the appointment.

“On behalf of the state government, I wish to extend our heartiest appreciation and congratulations to Tunku Temenggong for the appointment,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Tunku Annuar, 75, the Sultan’s younger brother, died after a heart attack at the Ipoh Pantai Hospital at 12.20am on May 21.

He and his younger brothers, Tunku Sallehuddin and Tan Sri Tunku Abdul Hamid Thani, as well as the Sultan’s daughter, Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz, were appointed to the regency in December 2012 following Tuanku Abdul Halim’s appointment as the 14th Yang di-Pertuan Agong. — Bernama
