German term or phrase: Ministerium Haupt
This is from the minutes of a press conference conducted in Austria concerning gene-altered corn/maize. For while I thought des Ministeriums Haupt meant the head of the agriculture ministry, but the following sentence throws me. Aus unserer Sicht ist zu klären, wer verantwortlich ist, das Ministerium Haupt oder das Ministerium Molterer – Minister Haupt war immer in die Diskussion und auch über den Zertifizierungszeitraum (bis März und natürlich auch danach) eingebunden und informiert.
Es ist nicht verständlich, warum im März ein positiver Bescheid, im Juli dann ein negativer Bescheid kommt.

Haupt's Ministry

Minister Herbert Haupt is what is giving you problems.

From what I understand, Herren Herbert Haupt und ??? Molterer sind die beiden Bundesministeren, also, Haupt's Ministry and Molterer's ministry (see Minister haupt in your quote)
Here's another example:

There's obviously some wordplay, when you have "Haupt-ministerium oder ministerium Haupt"

Minister Haupt und Minister Molterer


Explanation:

Man koennte vielleicht sagen:

... ministry, under (the leadership) of Haupt - as opposed to - Molterer.
Das wissen Sie ja selber.

Alles Gute
