Executive Yuan

The Executive Yuan (行政院; literally 'executive court') is the executive branch of the government of the Republic of China; it is commonly referred to as "The Cabinet" (內閣).

It is headed by a President, commonly referred to as the Premier of the Republic of China, and has a vice president (vice premier), and various cabinet ministers, heads of commissions, and ministers without portfolio as its members. The members of the Executive Yuan are appointed by the President of the Republic of China.

Its formation, as one of five Yuans of the government, stemmed from the Three Principles of the People, the constitutional theory of Sun Yat-sen, but was adjusted constitutionally over the years to adapt to the situation in Taiwan by changes in the laws and the Constitution of the Republic of China.
