Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing (born 2 December 1951) is a Malaysian politician. He is a member of the Sabah State Legislative Assembly and a former Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the seat of Tuaran, Sabah (2008–2013).

Bumburing was first elected to the State Assembly in 1985, as a member of the United Sabah Party (PBS). In 1994, he joined Bernard Dompok in defecting from PBS to join the Barisan Nasional coalition, setting up the party that subsequently became the United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO). He was a Deputy Chief Minister in the Barisan Nasional government.[1]

He was elected to federal Parliament in the 2008 election for the seat of Tuaran.[2][3] His election came after UPKO's incumbent member Wilfred Madius Tangau stood down citing the wishes of the party's leadership.[4] In 2012, he left UPKO to sit in Parliament as a member of the opposition Pakatan Rakyat coalition.[5] He recontested the 2013 election as a Pakatan Rakyat candidate, but lost his seat to Tangau, who had returned to the UPKO deputy presidency. Bumburing did, however, win the seat of Tamparuli in the Sabah State Legislative Assembly.[6]
