The purpose of this paper is to discuss the change of transfers of committee assignment and the seniority system of committee chairs since the second-term Legislative Yuan in Taiwan. The research finds that, except the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), there are no seniority regulations about committee assignments and committee chairs. In the Kuomintang (KMT) caucus, committee transfers and chairs are decided by its headquarters, sub-groups, and legislators' power. As for the People First Party, profession is the main factor. Due to the limited member of seats won by the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU), its members participate in a small number of committees and stick to their original assignments in the first session. After the Legislative Yuan adopted "registering at own will but casting lots if no empty slots" system, committee transfers have become more and more common from second to fourth term Legislative Yuan. The situation was improved obviously after changing to the "party proportional system" in the fifth Legislative Yuan. The TSU members have the lowest rate of committee transfers, then PFP members, then KMT members, and then DPP members. The committee transfers within every committee also declined significantly except the "Technology and Information Committee". Besides, after the term-limit of the committee chair was abolished in the fifth Legislative Yuan, the proportion of new legislators serving as the committee chair has largely declined, especially those of the KMT and DPP members. Because the PFP and the TSU have just entered in the Legislative Yuan, their proportions of new legislators serving as the committee chairs are higher than those of the KMT and the DPP.
