"Can the appropriate MP's choose their ministerial position? Or is it delegated to them? "

Thanks for your question Jessica.

The Prime Minister decides which members of the government should become ministers. The Prime Minister choose experienced and knowledgeable government members to be ministers and expects them to work together on behalf of the government. Although members of the government team may have views about who should become ministers, it is the Prime Minister who decides.
