The cabinet is regarded as the principal advisory body to the president of Volkia. The heads of the federal ministries are appointed by the president and confirmed by a majority vote in the Federal Council. Acting ministerial heads may sit in on Cabinet meetings whether or not they have been officially confirmed by the Federal Council. The president may designate heads of other agencies and unconfirmed members of the Executive Office of the President as Cabinet-level members of the Cabinet.
