Thulusdhoo and Funadhoo – Capitals Again

The former capitals of Kaaf atoll and and Shaviyani atolls have been reinstated.

The government changed the capitals from Thulusdhoo to Maafushi (Kaafu atoll) and from Funadhoo to Milandhoo (Shaviyani atoll) on 26 October 2009.

That decision has now been reversed by the Majlis after a vote with 41 MPs for the reinstatement and 31 against.

The bill containing the reinstatement, originally presented by Funadhoo MP Ali Saleem, was passed with committee amendments.
