How are the Council of Ministers categorised?
The Council of Ministers are classified as follows:
- Cabinet Ministers: They are usually top-level leaders of the ruling party or parties who are in charge of the major ministries. Usually, the Cabinet Ministers meet to take decisions in the name of the Council of Ministers.
- Ministers of State with Independent Charge: They are usually in charge of smaller ministries. They participate in the cabinet meeting only when they are specially invited.
- Ministers of State: They are attached to and are required to assist the Cabinet Ministers.
