Wang Chien-shien (Chinese: 王建煊; pinyin: Wáng Jiànxuān) (born August 7, 1938) is a founder of the New Party. He was finance minister of the Republic of China from 1990 to 1992 and is the chairman of the Chinese Management Association (since 1990). Wang is the President of the Control Yuan since July 2008.
Born in Anhui, Wang grew up in Taipei City and received a bachelor's degree from Taiwan Provincial Cheng Kung University and a master's degree from National Chengchi University. Wang was popular in the 1990s for his clean reputation and split with the Kuomintang to help found the New Party.
In 2001, the three parties of the pan-Blue coalition, the Kuomintang, the People First Party, and the New Party agreed to field only one candidate for Taipei County magistrate in 2001 based on which party could field the most popular candidate in polls. Despite the unified ticket and a poll predicting him winning, Wang lost to Su Tseng-chang. He also participated in the 1998 Taipei City mayoral race. Wang is married to Su Fa-jau (蘇法昭).
