Title

Source 6: Constitution of the Republic of China (1946)

Description

This was the first constitution of the Republic of China. Previous constitutions were only provisional in nature. The constitution emphasises the teachings of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen as the guiding ideology of the republic. In particular, the constitution emphasises the right to vote, something never enacted by Chiang. It also emphasises that every president only has the right to two six-year terms, something also breached by Chiang in Taiwan under the provision of martial law.
