The Legislative Yuan is the unicameral legislature of the Republic of China now based in Taiwan. It is one of the five branches (五院; wǔyuàn) of government stipulated by the Constitution of the Republic of China, which follows Sun Yat-sen's Three Principles of the People. Although sometimes referred to as a “parliament”, the Legislative Yuan, under Sun's political theory, is a branch of government. According to the Judicial Yuan’s interpretation number 76 of the Constitution (1957), the parliament of the republic includes all three of the National Assembly (now abolished), the Legislative Yuan, and the Control Yuan. However, after constitutional amendments effectively transferring almost all of the National Assembly's powers to the Legislative Yuan in the late 1990s, it has become more common in Taiwanese newspapers to refer to the Legislative Yuan as “the parliament” (國會; guóhuì).
