OccupationPolitician

Datuk Shahruddin bin Md Salleh (Jawi: شهرالدين بن مد صالح) is a Malaysian politician who served as the Deputy Minister of Works in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration under Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and Minister Fadillah Yusof from March 2020 to his resignation in June 2020 and Deputy Minister of Federal Territories in the Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration under former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and former Minister Khalid Abdul Samad from July 2018 to the collapse of the PH administration in February 2020.[1][2] He has served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sri Gading since May 2018. He also served as Member of the Johor State Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Jorak from March 2008 to May 2018 and political secretary to Muhyiddin Yassin. He is a member of the Homeland Fighters' Party (PEJUANG) and was a member and Secretary-General of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU), a component party of the ruling PN coalition and former component party of the PH opposition coalition and member of the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO), a component party of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.[3]

On 2 June 2020, only three months after PN swept into power in March, he expressed his readiness to resign as the Deputy Minister of Works to "save" his party, BERSATU which was split into two factions led by former party chairman and former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad as well as party President and Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin respectively who were embroiled in a political tussle.[citation needed]

On 4 June 2020, he officially resigned from his position as the Deputy Minister of Works. However, a picture of a letter sent to Muhyiddin stating that he would remain a supporter of the government as a backbench MP was leaked online. Despite this, he later met with Mahathir who is allied with the opposition coalition PH. It was unclear whether Shahruddin supports the PN or PH coalition, with Shahruddin stating that he would address the matter via social media in the future.[4] On 19 July 2020, his BERSATU membership was terminated after he had issued a notice to change the position of his seat in the Dewan Rakyat from the government bloc to the opposition bloc.[5]
