Since 25 October 2005 to the end of the term of office, the day-by-day working plan of the government was ruled by its division into commissions. All the commissions were chaired by the First Minister, but eventually another minister could rule as. Its initial composition was:

Governmental Commission of Institutional Policy Governmental Commission of Economy Governmental Commission of Social Policy Governmental Commission of Territory
  • Minister of Institutional Relations and Participation, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Justice
  • Minister of Governance and Public Administration
  • Minister of Economy and Finance, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Employment and Industry
  • Minister of Trade, Tourism and Consumer Affairs
  • Minister of Universities, Research and the Information Society
  • Minister of Education, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Home Affairs
  • Minister of Culture
  • Minister of Health
  • Minister of Social Welfare and Family Affairs
  • Minister of Town and Country Town and Public Works, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries
  • Minister of the Environment and Housing

After the last government restructuration (15 May 2006, when ERC ministers were expelled from the government) the composition became:

Governmental Commission of Institutional Policy Governmental Commission of Economy Governmental Commission of Social Policy Governmental Commission of Territory
  • Minister of Institutional Relations and Participation, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Justice
  • Minister of Governance and Public Administration
  • Minister of Economy and Finance, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Employment and Industry
  • Minister of Health, and accidental president of the Commission
  • Minister of Home Affairs
  • Minister of Culture
  • Minister of Education and Universities
  • Minister of Social Welfare and Family Affairs

Public Safety perhaps better capture the "idea" of the department, but Interior Department is frequently used in the English-language media for similarly named agencies in other governments despite the fact that, for example, the U.S. Department of the Interior has a much different portfolio.
  2. ^ The "official" translation of the department name from Catalan (Política Territorial) into English is Town and Country Town; Regional Planning, however, is a translation that most in the English-speaking world would find much more comprehensible.
