Daulat DYMM Tuanku Sultan dan DYMM Sultanah Kedah Darul Aman
From December 13, 2011, DYMM Tuanku Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah will become the first ruler to be elected twice as Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the oldest Sultan to be crowned in such position (at 84 years 15 days), beating the previous record holder, DYMM Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz of Selangor, who was crowned at 73 years 49 days.
DYMM Tuanku’s return to Kuala Lumpur as Malaysia’s Head of State is regarded by his subjects as a great honour to Kedah and we join fellow Kedahans and other Malaysians in offering our sembah tahniah to His Majesty and His Consort and pray for Their Majesties’ good health and happiness. May our country prosper and remain in peace during His Majesty’s 5-year tenure as our King.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
