Taiwan
Taiwan
Province is one of the two administrative divisions of the Republic of China
Republic of China
(ROC) that are officially referred to as "provinces". The province covers approximately 69% of the actual-controlled territory of the ROC, with around 31% of the total population. Geographically it covers the majority of the island of Taiwan
Taiwan
as well as almost all of its surrounding islands, the largest of which are the Penghu
Penghu
archipelago, Green Island, Xiaoliuqiu
Xiaoliuqiu
Island and Orchid Island. Taiwan
Taiwan
Province does not cover territories of the special municipalities of Kaohsiung, New Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Taipei, and Taoyuan, all of which are located geographically within the main island of Taiwan. It also does not include the counties of Kinmen
Kinmen
and Lienchiang, which are located alongside the southeast coast of mainland China
China
and administered as a separate Fujian Province
Fujian Province
(not to be confused with the PRC's Fujian Province). Originally Taiwan
Taiwan
Province covered the entire island of Taiwan
Taiwan
and all its associated islands. All the special municipalities were split off from the province between 1967 and 2014. Since 1997 most of the Taiwan provincial government's functions have been transferred to the central government of the Republic of China
Republic of China
following a constitutional amendment. The Taiwan
Taiwan
Provincial Government has effectively become a nominal institution under the Executive Yuan's administration.[1][2] The People's Republic of China
Republic of China
(PRC) regards itself as the "successor state" of the Republic of China
Republic of China
(ROC), which the PRC claims no longer legitimately exists, following establishment of the PRC in mainland China. The PRC asserts itself to be the sole legitimate government of China, and claims Taiwan
Taiwan
as its 23rd province, even though the PRC itself has never had control of Taiwan
Taiwan
or other ROC-held territories. The ROC disputes this position, maintaining that it still legitimately exists and that the PRC has not succeeded it to sovereignty.

History[edit] Qing Dynasty[edit] In 1683, Zheng Keshuang (third ruler of the Kingdom of Tungning
Kingdom of Tungning
and a grandson of Koxinga), surrendered to the Qing following a naval engagement with Admiral Shi Lang. The Qing then ruled the Taiwanese archipelago (including Penghu) as Taiwan
Taiwan
Prefecture of Fujian Province. In 1875, Taipeh Prefecture was separated from Taiwan Prefecture. In 1885, work commenced under the auspices of Liu Ming-chuan to develop Taiwan
Taiwan
into a province. In 1887, the island was designated as a province (officially Fokien-Taiwan Province (zh)), with Liu as the first governor.[3] The province was also reorganized into four prefectures, eleven districts, and three sub-prefectures.[4][5] The provincial capital, or "Taiwan-fu", was intended to be moved from the south (modern-day Tainan) to the more central area of Toatun (modern-day Taichung) in the revamped Taiwan
Taiwan
Prefecture.[6] As the new central Taiwan-fu was still under construction, the capital was temporarily moved north to Taipeh (modern-day Taipei), which eventually was designated the provincial capital.

Empire of Japan[edit] In 1895, the entire Taiwan
Taiwan
Province, including Penghu, was ceded to Japan
Japan
following the First Sino-Japanese War
First Sino-Japanese War
through the Treaty of Shimonoseki. Under Japanese rule, the province was abolished in favour of Japanese-style divisions. After the surrender of Japan
Japan
in 1945, the Taiwan
Taiwan
was handed over to the Republic of China
Republic of China
(ROC). The way that the ROC obtained Taiwan
Taiwan
is a subject of controversy that gave root to the complex unresolved political status of Taiwan
Taiwan
and the Taiwan independence movement. Republic of China[edit]

Map of Taiwan
Taiwan
Province, ROC(1945-1949)

The ROC government immediately established the Taiwan
Taiwan
Provincial Government under first Chief Executive and government-general Chen Yi in September 1945.[8][9] Chen was extremely unpopular and his rule led to an uprising – the February 28 Incident. Chen was recalled in May 1947 and the government-general position was abolished. When the Republic of China
Republic of China
government was relocated to Taipei
Taipei
in 1949 as a result of the Kuomintang's (KMT) defeat by the Chinese Communist Party forces in the Chinese Civil War, the provincial administration remained in place under the claim that the ROC was still the government of all of China
China
even though the opposition argued that it overlapped inefficiently with the national government.

The building of the Taiwan
Taiwan
Provincial Government at Zhongxing New Village

The seat of the provincial government was moved from Taipei
Taipei
to Zhongxing New Village
Zhongxing New Village
in 1956. Historically, Taiwan
Taiwan
Province covers the entire island of Taiwan
Taiwan
and all its associated islands. The city of Taipei
Taipei
was split off to become a province-level special municipality in 1967, and the city of Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung
was split off in 1979 to become another special municipality. In December 2010, Kaohsiung County left the province and merged with the original Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung
City to become an expanded Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung
City, Taipei
Taipei
County became the special municipality named New Taipei
Taipei
City. The cities and counties of Taichung
Taichung
and Tainan
Tainan
were also merged, respectively, and elevated to special municipality. On 25 December 2014, Taoyuan County was upgraded into a special municipality and split off from Taiwan
Taiwan
Province. Until 1992, the governor of Taiwan
Taiwan
province was appointed by the ROC central government. The office was often a stepping stone to higher office. In 1992, the post of the governor of the province was opened to election. The then-opposition Democratic Progressive Party
Democratic Progressive Party
(DPP) agreed to retain the province with an elected governor in the hopes of creating a "Yeltsin effect" in which a popular local leader could overwhelm the national government. These hopes proved unfulfilled as then- Kuomintang
Kuomintang
member James Soong
James Soong
was elected governor of Taiwan province, defeating the DPP candidate Chen Ding-nan. In 1997, as the result of an agreement between the KMT and the DPP, the administration of the province was streamlined and curtailed by constitutional changes. For example, the post of provincial governor and the provincial assembly were both abolished and replaced with a nine-member special council. Although the stated purpose was administrative efficiency, Soong and his supporters claim that it was actually intended to destroy James Soong's power base and eliminate him from political life, though it did not have this effect. In addition, the provincial legislature was abolished, while the Legislative Yuan
Legislative Yuan
was expanded to include some of the former provincial legislators.

Prior to January 1, 2007 all vehicles registered in Taiwan
Taiwan
Province carried the label " Taiwan
Taiwan
Province" (台灣省) on their license plates.

The provincial administration has been greatly streamlined in 1998, and handed most of its power to the central government. The counties and provincial cities under the province then became the primary administrative divisions in the country. In contrast to the past where the head of Taiwan
Taiwan
province was considered a major official, the Governor of the Taiwan
Taiwan
Provincial Government after 1999 has been considered a very minor position. Government[edit] Main article: Taiwan

The members of the Provincial Council are all appointed by the president.

Note: The cities of Kaohsiung, New Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Taipei and Taoyuan are administered directly by the central government and are not part of Taiwan
Taiwan
province. The Senkaku Islands, which are currently administered by Japan, are disputed by both the ROC and PRC, which claim them as the Tiaoyutai/Diaoyutai Islands.

Therefore, in 1887, the island was declared by Imperial decree an independent province, and the Imperial Commissioner Liu Ming-chuan was appointed the first governor.  ^ Davidson (1903), p. 244: "A thorough reorganization and redivisioning of the island was now necessitated.
