About State Cabinet
Western Australia's Liberal National Government, led by Premier Colin Barnett MLA, has 17 Cabinet members.
The Cabinet comprises all Government Ministers and is chaired by the Premier. The Cabinet meets on a weekly basis, with meetings regularly scheduled in regional parts of Western Australia.
Under the Westminster system of government, Cabinet members are collectively responsible for the conduct and operations of the Western Australian Government. The confidentiality of Cabinet documents, discussions and decisions is a long established principle that supports collective responsibility and frank discussions at Cabinet meetings.
