Executive Council Guidelines

Text Size a a a Print Print this page

The Executive Council is the supreme decision making body of government and consists of the Governor (as chair) and all Cabinet Ministers. Its principal purpose is to advise the Governor on matters relating to the government of the State. It can give legal form to Cabinet decisions, which have no legal status in their own right.

These guidelines assist in understanding the Executive Council process and provide specific information for those involved in the preparation of submissions to the Council.
