The Cabinet of Georgia is an executive council of government ministers in Georgia. It is headed by the Prime Minister of Georgia. In the cases of utmost importance, the meetings may be led by the President of Georgia . The first Cabinet of Georgia was formed by Noe Zhordania in the Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1918. However, the first head of government was Noe Ramishvili, Zhordania succeeding him. Until 24 January 2008 the cabinet consisted of four State Ministers and thirteen Ministers. After the re-election of President Mikheil Saakashvili significant changes were made to the structure of the cabinet by the then head of the Georgian Government Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze . As a result, currently there are five Ministers of State and thirteen ministers. In Georgian politics, a Minister of State enjoys higher seniority over a minister as opposed to the British Cabinet where a Minister of State is below a Minister by rank. As a consequence of 2008 changes, several new positions, such as Minister of State for European Integration and Minister of State for Diasporas as well as Minister of State for Reintegration were introduced. Several former positions such as Minister of IDPs and Accommodation and Minister of State for Reforms were abolished. The ministers of defense and interior as well as the Prosecutor General are not members of the cabinet as such and are subordinated to the President of Georgia.
