A cabinet is a body of high-ranking country officials, typically comprising the best leaders of the executive branch. They are normally called ministers, but in a few jurisdictions are occasionally called secretaries. The functions of a cabinet are diverse: in some countries it is a collegiate decision-making body with collective duty, while in others it could function either as a strictly advisory body or a helping institution to a decision making head of state or head of government. Cabinets are usually the body responsible for the day-to-day management of the government and response to unexpected occasions, whereas the legislative and judicial branches work at a measured pace, in sessions according to lengthy procedures.
