The Cabinet of Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye Kabinesi) or Council of Ministers (Turkish: Bakanlar Kurulu) is the body that exercises supreme executive authority in Turkey. It is composed of the heads of the major ministries. From 1923 to 2018, Ministers were ceremonially appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister. From 2018, Turkey adopts an Executive Presidency meaning that the President has the full responsibility to appoint and relinquish Ministers from their duties. The cabinet is the executive power and is responsible for the management of the state.

Current members[edit]

The current cabinet is the 66th cabinet of Turkey and is led by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.[1]
