HL:Cabinet of Harlon

From Harlon City Server

MMThe Cabinet is the Executive Council of the Federation of Harlon. This position is held by Members of Parliament who are appointed by the Prime Minister. By convention, cabinets are formed by members of the majority party (or coalition) at the start of every term. The current cabinet of Harlon is the NicheGuy III Cabinet.

The Cabinet serves as both advisors to the Prime Minister, and supervisors of government operations. Each minister is appointed to a specific portfolio to supervise. Members of cabinet are responsible to the Prime Minister, as well as to all of Parliament collectively.

Cabinet Portfolios[edit]

While the Constitution does establish an Executive Council, it does not include specifics of each portfolio for Ministers. This leaves the portfolio of responsibilities open to regular legislative changes. As of October 2023, the Cabinet contains the following portfolios:

  • Minister of Home Affairs
  • Minister of Justice
  • Minister of Finance
  • Minister of Infrastructure and Development
  • Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • Minister of National Defence

The Cabinet also contains the Deputy Prime Minister who is not bound to any specific portfolio, but serves as the chief advisor to the Prime Minister.

Cabinet Composition[edit]

The Prime Minister has the power to adjust and appoint Members of Parliament to the Cabinet as they see fit. Ministers serve solely at the pleasure of the Prime Minister. This power has resulted in various governments having different styles of managing their cabinet. On occasion, some cabinets have included Senators and MPs of other parties. In addition, other cabinets have included MPs appointed to multiple portfolios at once.

There are however constraints on these powers, including legislation requiring the government to pass new laws in order to establish new positions within the Cabinet.
