Departments of the United Kingdom Government Types of Government department Government departments are either ministerial departments or non-ministerial departments. Non-ministerial departments generally cover matters for which direct political oversight is judged unnecessary or inappropriate. They are headed by senior civil servants. Some fulfil a regulatory or inspection function, and their status is therefore intended to protect them from political interference. Some are headed by Permanent Secretaries or Second Permanent Secretaries.

List of Canadian ministries This is a list of Canadian ministries and their prime ministers since Confederation (1 July 1867). Ministries External links Parliament of Canada - Ministries Marshall Islands Republic of the Marshall Islands Web Forum These beautiful islands are a collection of 1,225 islands and islets of which only five are single islands. The rest are grouped into 29 coral atolls which together make up more than one-tenth of all the atolls in the world resembling strings of pearls in a blue ocean backdrop. It is no wonder they are referred to as the 'Pearl of the Pacific'. They lie in two parallel chains known as sunrise and sunset (Ratak and Ralik) and in true atoll form, they are narrow and low and encircle large central lagoons. All the islands have glorious white sandy beaches, tall palms and are lapped by crystal clear waters.
List of British governments Guide to the List 'Ministry' is a term used to refer collectively to all the ministers of a government, including cabinet members and junior ministers alike. Only the Civil Service is considered outside of the ministry. While the term was in common parlance in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it has become rarer, except in official and academic uses. Both Australia and Canada have inherited the term and continue to use it. It is perhaps in more common use in those countries, which both have official catalogues of their respective ministries, whereas Britain has no such catalogue. Articles listed by ministry contain information on the term(s) of one prime minister.

Cabinet of Germany In contrast to the system under the pre-Hitler Weimar Republic, the Bundestag may both only move a constructive vote of no-confidence (by electing a new Chancellor if it has lost trust in the existing) and can also only choose to dismiss the entire cabinet and not simply individual ministers. These procedures and mechanisms were put in place by the authors of the Basic Law to both prevent another dictatorship and to ensure that there will not be a political vacuum left by the removal of Chancellor through a vote of confidence and the failure to elect a new one in their place, as had happened during the Weimar period with the Reichstag removing Chancellors but failing to agree on the election of a new one. There is a grace period in-between the dismissal of a Chancellor by the Bundestag and until the Bundestag can elect a new Chancellor, so as to allow the federal government, if it so wishes, to advise the Federal President to dissolve the Bundestag so that elections may be held.
Chancellor of Germany The Chancellor of Germany is the head of government of Germany. The official title in German is Bundeskanzler(-in) (literally, Federal Chancellor), sometimes shortened to Kanzler(-in). The term, dating from the early Middle Ages, is derived from the Latin term cancellarius. In German politics the Chancellor is equivalent to that of a prime minister in many other countries. The German term directly equivalent to Prime Minister, Ministerpräsident, is used for the heads of government of most German states (referred to in German as Länder, literally "countries") as well as foreign countries.

Mick Gooda pushes referendum on Indigenous recognition for 2015 The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social justice commissioner, Mick Gooda, has called for the referendum on constitutional recognition of Indigenous people to be held by the end of 2015. He said the movement needed to to stop being “burdened by complacency and administrative processes” and decide on a referendum model to allow proper debate to start. The current process towards constitutional recognition began “in earnest” at the 2010 election with bipartisan support, said Gooda in a speech on Thursday evening, but has since stalled, with multiple inquiries and committees being convened, lapsing, and being reconvened. The push for constitutional recognition is widely, but not unanimously, supported by Indigenous leaders and politicians, and there are just months left before parliamentary recognition – under the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Recognition Act – will disappear under a two-year sunset clause.
