 President of the Republic of China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The existing office was created in 1948 under the 1947 Constitution of the Republic of China, but soon afterwards, the Kuomintang lost mainland China to the Communists in the Chinese Civil War, forcing the ROC government, along with its presidency, to retreat to Taiwan.
The new Constitution of the Republic of China, promulgated on December 25, 1947, established a five-branch government with the office of president (總統) as head of state.
Until the 1980s power in the Republic of China was personalized rather than institutionalized which meant that the power of the President depended largely on who occupied the office.
