They are usually called ministers, but in a few jurisdictions are sometimes called secretaries. The purposes of a cabinet are diverse: in some states it's a collegiate decision-making body with collective responsibility, 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.
