President Abdullah Yameen Abdul Qayyoom had assembled the Secretariat of L. Atoll Kaliadhoo Council.
He formed the Council Secretariat under clause number 127 of the Decentralization Laws.
The updated list Local Council Secretariats have been published on the President's Office website. A total of 189 Island Councils, 19 Atoll Councils and 2 City Councils form the administrative zones of Maldives now.
Even though Kalaidhoo shares the same land mass with Isdhoo, the areas were separated into two separate administrative zones by a Presidential decree, last December 3rd. This decree was in place for the voting of the Local Council Elections held yesterday and 5 Councillors were elected to the Council as well.
