A cabinet is a body of high-ranking country officials, typically consisting of the best leaders of the executive branch. They are normally called ministers, but in some jurisdictions are occasionally called secretaries. The purposes of a cabinet are diverse: in some states it's a collegiate decision-making system with collective duty, while in others it could operate either as a strictly advisory body or a assisting institution to a decision making head of state or head of government.
