Hulhumeedhoo (Dhivehi: ހުޅުމީދޫ) or Hulhudhoo-Meedhoo[1] is one of the inhabited islands of the Addu Atoll (also known as Seenu Atoll) in Maldives. Hulhumeedhoo is the only inhabited island in Eastern side of Addu Atoll. Although the island is geographically a single island, it is administratively divided into two. That is Hulhudhoo and Meedhoo. The exact reason for the separation of people is unknown. This is the only island in Maldives which is geographically one, but politically and administratively two islands. When Addu Atoll declared status of a city, the two administrative offices was brought under one council office where the Councillor is elected from the votes of the residents of Hulhumeedhoo.
