List of Mayors[edit]

This list includes only those persons who served as mayors of Tainan City after the end of World War II, during the Post-War era of Taiwan. The first two mayors served were appointed by the central government of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

The numerals indicate the consecutive time in office served by a single elected mayor. For example, Su Nan-cheng served two consecutive terms and is counted as the tenth mayor (not the eighth and ninth). Yeh Ting-kuei served three non-consecutive terms and is counted chronologically as the 3rd, the 5th, and the 7th mayor. Because of this, the list below contains 14 mayoralties, but only 12 people.
