The Cabinet (or executive council) is selected by Members of the Legislative Assembly from within their own ranks. The Members of the Legislative Assembly meet in a forum known as the Nunavut Leadership Forum. Within this forum, Members nominate one another to the Executive council, then each nominated Member has the opportunity to speak briefly before the Assembly. A secret ballot is then held to finalize the selection of the Executive Council.
