The Federation Cabinet is a special committee established by law and consisting of the heads of the executive departments of the Federation Government and certain "cabinet-level" officers.
The executive departments of the Federation government are the major administrative divisions that manage government affairs. Department heads are senior Federation officers. The Federation President appoints these officers with the advice and consent of the Federation Council. These department heads serve at the pleasure of the Federation President and are typically replaced whenever a new President is elected. Besides the President, the department heads also give regular reports to their corresponding sub-council.
The heads of the executive departments in order of precedence:
Certain Federation government officials who are not heads of executive departments are Cabinet-Level Officers because their agencies are key to Federation governance.
