A cabinet is a body of high-ranking state officials, typically comprising the top leaders of the executive branch. They are normally known as ministers, but in a few jurisdictions are occasionally known as secretaries. The purposes of a cabinet are diverse: in some states it is a collegiate decision-making body with collective duty, while in others it may operate either as a purely advisory body or an assisting institution to a decision making head of state or head of government. Cabinets are usually the body responsible for its daily management of their authorities and response to unexpected occasions, whereas the legislative and judicial branches work at a measured rate, in sessions according to lengthy procedures.
