Government of the Republic of China
The Government of the Republic of China known as the Government of Taiwan, is the democratic, constitutional government that exercises control over Taiwan and the other islands in the free area. The president is the head of state; the government consists of five Yuans, the Executive Yuan, Legislative Yuan, Judicial Yuan, Control Yuan, Examination Yuan. Established in 1912 in Nanking, the Government of the Republic of China relocated several times, moved to Taipei in 1949 because of its military losses in the Chinese Civil War; the government had been dominated by the Kuomintang, but the situation has changed as Taiwan evolved into a multi-party democracy. The ROC government formally consists of the presidency and five branches of government, modeled on Sun Yat-sen's political philosophy of Three Principles of the People. In practice, the system resembles a semi-presidential system with a uniquely strong presidency, as the President may appoint the Premier, the head of government, without the consent of the legislature.
The President, shares limitations found in other semi-presidential systems, including the lack of a strong veto and no direct control of most administrative policy. President of the Republic of China Vice President of the Republic of China Office of the President Secretary-General of the Office of the President National Security Council Secretary-General of the National Security Council The Executive Yuan is in charge of the Premier. However, the ROC's political system does not fit traditional models; the Premier is selected by the President without the need for approval from the Legislature, but the Legislature can pass laws without regard for the President, as neither the President nor the Premier wields veto power. Thus, there is little incentive for the President and the Legislature to negotiate on legislation if they are of opposing parties. During the tenure of the pan-Green's Chen Shui-bian the continued control of the Legislative Yuan by the pan-Blue majority caused legislation to stall, as the two sides were deadlocked.
There is another curiosity of the ROC system. This legacy has resulted in executive powers being concentrated in the office of the President rather than the Premier; the main legislative body is the unicameral Legislative Yuan with thirteen seats. Seventy-three are elected in single member districts. Members serve four-year terms. Although sometimes referred to as a "parliament", the Legislative Yuan, under Sun's political theory, is a branch of government, while only the National Assembly of the Republic of China, now abolished, with the power to amend the constitution and to elect the President and Vice President, could be considered a parliament. However, after constitutional amendments transferring all of the National Assembly's powers to the Legislative Yuan in the late 1990s, it has become more common for newspapers in Taiwan to refer to the Legislative Yuan as the nation's "parliament"; the Judicial Yuan is the ROC's highest judiciary. The President and Vice-President of the Judicial Yuan and fifteen Justices form the Council of Grand Justices.
They are nominated and appointed by the President of the Republic, with the consent of the Legislative Yuan. The highest court, the Supreme Court, consists of a number of civil and criminal divisions, each of, formed by a presiding Judge and four Associate Judges, all appointed for life. In 1993, a separate constitutional court was established to resolve constitutional disputes, regulate the activities of political parties and accelerate the democratization process. There is no trial by jury but the right to a fair and public trial is protected by law and respected in practice. Capital punishment is legal. Efforts have been made by the government to reduce the number of executions, although they have not been able to abolish the punishment; as of 2006, about 80% of Taiwanese want to keep the death penalty. Based on the traditional Chinese censorate, the Control Yuan is an investigatory agency that monitors the other branches of government, it may be compared to the Court of Auditors of the European Union, the Government Accountability Office of the United States, a political ombudsman, or a standing commission for administrative inquiry.
The Examination Yuan is in charge of validating the qualification of civil servants in the Republic of China. As a special branch of government under the Three Principles of the People; the concept of the Examination Yuan is based on the old Imperial examination system used in Imperial China. The Government of the Republic of China was formally established in 1912 in Nanking, with Sun Yat-sen as President of the Provisional Government of the Republic of China under the Provisional Constitution of the Republic of China; this government moved to Beijing in the same year with Yuan Shikai as President, continued under his successors as the internationally recognized government of China until 1928. In the Republican period, there were a series of governments, sometimes in rivalry with each other; the Nationalist government, led by the Kuomintang, was formed as a rival military government under Sun Yat-sen in Guangzhou in 1917. After Sun's death in 1925, Chiang Kai-shek led the
