A cabinet is a body of high-ranking country officials, typically comprising the top leaders of the executive branch. They are normally called ministers, but in some jurisdictions are sometimes called secretaries. The purposes of a cabinet are varied: in some states it's a collegiate decision-making body with collective responsibility, while in others it could operate either as a strictly 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 the government and response to sudden events, whereas the legislative and judicial branches work in a measured pace, in sessions according to prolonged processes.
