Cobura Cabinet

The Alphiemes Cabinet posing for the press after being inaugurated.

The Cabinet of the United Governorates of Cobura is the collective decision-making body of the Government of Cobura, composed of the (deputy) Prime Minister and 12 cabinet ministers, the most senior of the government ministers, and 20 State Secretaries. Also 9 extraordinary posts (eg. Directors, CCB Chairmen etc) are included, but these are not officially part of the Cabinet. However, they are appointed the same way and usually their terms in office align with cabinet terms and switches. Just like cabinet members, they are subordinate to their superior minister.

Cabinet ministers can be selected from all sectors and are not required to be politically experience, by the Prime Minister. However, they are required to be a Coburan citizen. Cabinet ministers are heads of government departments, mostly with the office of "Minister of [function; e.g., Defence]".

The collective co-ordinating function of the Cabinet is reinforced by the statutory position that all the Ministers jointly hold the same office, and can exercise the same powers.

Cabinet ministers, like all ministers, are appointed and may be dismissed by the monarch, on the initiative of the Prime Minister. The allocation and transfer of responsibilities between ministers and departments is also generally at the Prime Minister's discretion. The Cabinet has always been led by the Prime Minister, whose originally unpaid office as such was traditionally described as merely primus inter pares (first among equals), but today the Prime Minister is the preeminent head of government, with the effective power to appoint and dismiss Cabinet ministers and to control the Cabinet's agenda. The extent to which the Government is collegial varies with political conditions and individual personalities.

Appointment and dismissal Edit

To confirm a cabinet, the Prime Minister (usually the leader of the biggest party after elections) forms a cabinet. Every cabinet requires more than half of the House of Representatives to approve. After that, the Crown instates the cabinet.

After elections or a cabinet downfall, the Crown can, on initiative of the Prime Minister, dismiss a member, or the cabinet as a whole.
