Incumbent Cabinet

  • Prime Minister
  • Deputy Prime Minister/s
  • Ministers — highest-ranking members of the Government
  • Deputy ministers (Zëvëndësministër) — assist ministers in specialized areas of their portfolio
  • General Secretaries (Sekretari i Përgjithshëm) — assist ministers in less important areas and occasionally attend sessions of the Council of Ministers.

Council members are subdivided into three substantial ranks, along with one honorary rank:


The Cabinet plays a major role in determining the agenda of the Parliament. It can propose laws and amendments during parliamentary sessions. It also has a number of procedures at its disposal to expedite parliamentary deliberations.

Cabinet ministers cannot propose legislation without parliamentary approval. Ministers can however propose bills to Parliament and any such legislation is generally very likely to pass. On occasion, the majority opinion in Parliament may differ significantly from those of the executive, resulting in a large number of riders.

The Council is responsible to the Parliament of Albania. The Parliament may choose to pass a motion of censure forcing the Council of Ministers to resign. This has the effect of forcing the Government to be composed of members from the majority political party in the Assembly or to be allied to the majority in a coalition. Ministers are required to answer written or oral questions put to them by members of Parliament, known as Government questions. In addition, ministers attend sessions of the Parliament when laws concerning their assigned sectors and departmental portfolios are under consideration.
