Midsalip is a fourth class municipality in the province of Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 31,467 people.[3]

History[edit]

The town's name is from a Subanen word,"Migsalip" which means "to collect" or "accumulate".

Midsalip was formed as a municipality out of 21 barrios of the Municipality of Ramon Magsaysay and 6 barrios of the Municipality of Dumingag on September 9, 1964, by virtue of Executive Order Number 94 signed by President Diosdado Macapagal.[4] This didn’t last long, however, as it as dissolved on February 26, 1966, due to a Supreme Court decision regarding the legality of the funds disbursed by the municipal treasurer. As a result, Midsalip was reverted to barrio status. It wasn’t until May 8, 1967, when the Republic Act No. 4871 was passed when Midsalip became a regular municipality again.[5]
