You are probably not asking for a translation of the phrase "Scottish Ministers," but I will supply it anyway for the sake of providing a complete answer. In Arabic we can say:

الوزراء الاسكتلنديون

وزراء اسكتلندا

أعضاء الوزارة الاسكتلندية

The Scottish Ministers are the members of the Scottish Executive, which is the cabinet of ministers of the regional government in Scotland.

Scotland belongs to the British crown, so it is not an independent country. Yet, it has a vibrant regional government, with a parliament and an executive branch headed by the First Minister. These regional political institutions were established through the Scotland Act of 1998. Here is a link to this important document:

If you would like more information on the Scottish Executive, look at the official web site at:

All the Scottish Ministers and their functions are listed here:

I hope this is sufficient information.
