Shouldn't this be renamed to Minister (Politics)? Wouter Lievens 14:29, 22 July 2005 (UTC)
The article says that Ministers must be appointed from the legislature, but if I recall correctly both Stephane Dion, and Pierre Pettigrew were both made Canadian Cabinet Ministers by Jean Chretien before they were MPs. Sima Yi 07:01, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
What is the citation for "In some presidential systems of government, such as the United States, Philippines, and Mexico, ministers are formally titled secretaries because the term minister was considered to carry royalist connotations considered inappropriate in a republic." This seems unlikely at least in the US case which continued to use the British convention? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaze (talk • contribs) 08:44, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
- Shouldn't "Cohabitation" be under "Semi-presidential system" instead of under "Parliamentary system"?
- Shouldn't "Prime minister" be above "Chancellor" according to current usage of those terms?
Difference between Minister and Advisor?
Selected from parliament?
- The relation of ministers to the parliament appears to depend on the degree of separation of powers of the state concerned. I understand that the requirement of ministers being members of parliament is typical of the Westminster system and not at all common. I'll edit the article accordingly, hoping that others will add more examples of states where ministers should/cannot be members of parliament. Preslav (talk) 20:33, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
