There are four statutory Ministerial Committees: the Ministerial Committee on Foreign and Security Policy, the Ministerial Committee on European Union Affairs, the Ministerial Finance Committee and the Ministerial Committee on Economic Policy.
Ad hoc ministerial committees may also be appointed to prepare other than statutory matters. The Prime Minister designates the members of these committees after having consulted the Government parties. The mandate of a committee is also defined at the time of appointment. An extraordinary ministerial committee is appointed by a government plenary session.
