March 20th 1925 - Chiang Kai Shek takes over leadership of the Kuomintang


March 20th 1925: In China Chiang Kai Shek becomes head of the Nationalist Party Kuomintang. Originally forming a united front, along with the Communists, against Japans plans for expansion under his leadership the party declined a coalition with Mao. The conflict culminated in the Chinese civil war that ended with a victory of the Communists in 1949 and forced Chiang Kai Shek to retreat to Taiwan. With the support of the U.S. he established a military dictatorship in Taipei and appointed himself president of the Republic of China. The KMT functioned as the states single political party whose monopoly was not broken until the first free elections in 1992 and until the Taiwanese population was treated as equally as the previously politically dominant Chinese living on the mainland.
