A cupboard 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 sometimes known as secretaries. The purposes of a cupboard are diverse: in some countries it is a collegiate decision-making body with collective duty, while in others it may function either as a strictly advisory body or a assisting institution to a decision making head of state or head of government. Cabinets are typically the body responsible for its day-to-day management of their authorities and response to unexpected occasions, whereas the legislative and judicial branches work at a measured pace, in sessions according to prolonged processes.
