They are usually known as ministers, but in some jurisdictions are sometimes known as secretaries. The functions of a cabinet are diverse: in some states it is a collegiate decision-making body with collective duty, while in others it may operate either as a strictly advisory body or a helping institution to a conclusion making head of state or head of government. Cabinets are typically the body responsible for the day-to-day management of the government and response to sudden events, whereas the legislative and judicial branches operate at a measured rate, in sessions according to prolonged processes.
