ROC city mayors and county magistrates since 1989

I
NTRODUCTION
 
Below the central and provincial level, local administration in the ROC consists of 22 county-level units
 — 
5 special municipalities ( 
zhixiashi 
直轄市
 ), 3 cities ( 
shi 
 ), and 14 counties ( 
xian 
 ); 20 of them in Taiwan Province, 2 in Fu-jian Province. Taipei was declared a special municipality in July 1967, Kaohsiung in July 1979. In December 2010, Kaohsiung County was integrated into Kaohsiung City; Taipei County was upgraded to special municipality and renamed New Taipei City; furthermore, Taichung City and Taichung County as well as Tainan City and Tainan County were merged and both upgraded to special municipality. In August 2009, the terms of mayors and county magistrates in the ROC to be elected on Dec. 5, 2009, were ex-tended by a year to five years. Accordingly, the Dec. 5 elections did not include Taipei County, Kaohsiung County,  Taichung County, Taichung City, Tainan City and Tainan County as they were either directly upgraded to the status of a special municipality or integrated into a special municipality on Dec. 25, 2010. They held their elections simulta-neously with heads of the two existing special municipalities
 — 
 Taipei City and Kaohsiung City 
 — 
on Nov. 27, 2010.  This file shows local government leaders from 1989 on because only after martial law was lifted in the ROC in  July 1987 elections could be regarded as truly free and democratic. The first d
irect and free elections of Kinmen’s and Matsu’s county commissioners took place in Dec. 1993.
 Please note that text marked in red indicates that the information available (official English spelling of the name, birth year, and/or political affiliation) was incomplete. In each case I wrote to the respective city/county government (Keelung City, Taichung City, Taoyuan County, Yunlin County, Hualien County, Taitung County, Penghu County) but either received no response at all, or the agency was unable or unwilling to provide the requested information.
