Morowali Regency is a regency of Central Sulawesi Province of Indonesia. The administrative centre is at the town of Bungku. The Regency includes the far-flung Menui Islands (Kepulauan Menui), lying to the southwest of the rest of the province.

History

In 1999, Morowali Regency was created out of a portion of Poso Regency.[1] It was composed of the southeasterm fourteen districts of the former Poso Regency.

In 2013 this Morowali Regency was in turn divided into two Regencies. The seven northernmost districts were split off to form a new North Morowali Regency (Morowali Utara). The seven southernmost districts were retained as the residual Morowali Regency.

Administration

The Morowali Regency is divided (since the creation of the separate North Morowali Regency in 2013) into seven districts (kecamatan), tabulated below with their 2010 Census population.[2]
