Like any other state of the Indian Union, Sikkim has a Chief Minister,  Council of Ministers and MLAs chosen through the electoral process. The Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers are in charge of various Departments. Some of the Departments and a few of the Government Undertakings have the ruling party MLAs appointed as their Chairpersons. The bureaucracy in the State is headed by the Chief Secretary.
