A map showing mayors or magistrates of local administrative regions of Taiwan by their party colours (Dec 2018)

This article lists the current heads of governments of the 22 major administrative divisions in Taiwan. After the streamlining of provinces in 1998,[1] local autonomous bodies including the 6 special municipalities, 13 counties and 3 provincial cities are directly administrated by the central government (Executive Yuan) according to the Local Government Act.[2][3] Executive branch of the local autonomous bodies are led by a mayor or magistrate; each mayor or magistrate are elected by the population of each division with a maximum term of four years and are limited to two terms in office.[2]

Currently, all of the mayors of special municipalities and provincial cities and all of the county magistrates in the republic have won in the 2018 mayoral and magistratical elections and were sworn into office on 25 December 2018. Of the twenty-two current incumbents, seven are women—Lu Shiow-yen in Taichung City and Huang Min-hui in Chiayi City, as well as Wang Huei-mei in Changhua County, Chang Li-shan in Yunlin County, and all three magistrates for counties along the east coast. Lin Ming-chen of Nantou County is the oldest official (68 years, 147 days of age), while Hsinchu City's Lin Chih-chien is the youngest (44 years, 44 days old). Fifteen incumbents belong to the Kuomintang and six are from the Democratic Progressive Party; one has no party affiliation.
