His Imperial and Royal Apostolic Majesty's Government of Karnia-Ruthenia contains a number of ministers who are called Minister of State or Minister when they are in charge of a Ministry. These members are appointed by the Imperial Chancellor with the approval of the Emperor. They are, essentially, the cabinet of the Chancellor.

There are currently nine ministries and several minor institutions managed by these portfolios.

Responsabilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

Ministers assist the Imperial Chancellor in the exercise of executive power. Each minister is responsible for the general administration of a government portfolio, and heads the corresponding government ministry. Ministers prepare standards, monitor and evaluate government programs, formulate and implement policies for the sectors they represent. They are also responsible for establishing strategies, policies and priorities in the application of public resources.

The Cabinet exercises two kinds of power. Some of its powers are nominally exercised by the Emperor with the binding "advice and approval" of the Cabinet. Other powers are explicitly vested in the Cabinet. In practice, much of the Cabinet's authority is exercised by the Imperial Chancellor. Under the Constitution, the Imperial Chancellor exercises "control and supervision" over the executive branch, and no law or Cabinet order can take effect without the prime minister's countersignature (and the emperor's promulgation). While Cabinet Ministers in most other parliamentary democracies theoretically have some freedom of action (within the limits of cabinet collective responsibility), the Karno-Ruthenian Cabinet is effectively an extension of the Imperial Chancellor's authority.
