Imperial Ministers were senior government officials of the Galactic Empire. These bureaucrats each headed one of the several Imperial Ministries that encompassed the primary central Imperial Bureaucracy. Appointed by Emperor Palpatine, the ministers reported directly to the Grand Vizier, as well as to the Imperial Ruling Council. The Imperial Senate had nominal oversight of the Imperial Ministries before it was suspended by the Emperor.
