ALOR SETAR (Bernama): Sultan Sallehuddin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah has been installed as the 29th Sultan of Kedah in a ceremony steeped in tradition at the Balairung Seri (Throne Room) of Istana Anak Bukit here.

Following the installation on Monday, His Royal Highness will henceforth be addressed as “Al Aminul Karim Sultan Sallehuddin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah”.

The installation was held in the full tradition and custom of the Kedah Malay Sultanate, a historic ceremony considering that the last installation was held almost six decades ago, in 1959, when Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah ascended the Kedah throne. – Bernama
