Tun Datuk Patinggi Abang Haji Muhammad Salahuddin bin Abang Barieng was the Yang di-Pertua Negeri (Governor) of the Malaysian state of Sarawak from 1977 to 1981 and again from 2001 to 2014. He is the first person to serve as Governor twice.[1][2] He is also fondly known as Abang Louis, by his old friends and acquaintances, especially in his hometown of Sibu. His term officially ended on 28 February 2014, and he was succeeded by the former Chief Minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud, on 1 March.

Early life[edit]

Born in 1921, Salahuddin, or Abang Louis, is the only son of Abang Barieng bin Abang Anyut, a well-known figure in the Third Division (present-day Sibu Division).

After the Japanese occupation, he worked as Municipal Inspector until 1947 under the new British colonial administration. He continued in the public service under the National Registration Department and the Public Works Department.

Political career[edit]

He was active in state politics, helping to form Barisan Pemuda Sarawak (BPS) and Barisan Rakyat Jati Sarawak (BARJASA). Salahuddin acted as representative of the Melanau community to the Cobbold Commission during the years preceding the formation of Malaysia.

In 1963, he contested and won a seat in the state elections. However, he resigned in 1968 and returned to public service. He eventually became Chairman of the State Public Service Commission.

Governorship[edit]

In 1977, he was installed as the third Governor of Sarawak and served for a term of four years. In 2000, he became Acting Governor while the Governor Ahmad Zaidi Adruce was ill.[3] Zaidi Adruce died in December 2000, and Salahuddin was reappointed permanently to the governorship in February 2001, and his term officially ended on 28 February 2014.

Awards and recognitions[edit]

He has been awarded :[4]

He holds the usual Malay title of "Tun Datuk Patinggi" by combining the highest title of Malaysia and the highest title of Sarawak. But in other parts of Malaysia, he holds other titles. See details below.

Honours of Sarawak[edit]

Honours of Malaysia[edit]

Salahuddin was bestowed the nation's highest award – the Seri Maharaja Mangku Negara which carries the title Tun, by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on 7 June 1978.
