The Executive Council of Catalonia (Catalan: Consell Executiu) or Government of Catalonia (Catalan: Govern de Catalunya) is the executive branch of the autonomous Government, or Generalitat, of Catalonia, one of the autonomous communities of Spain. It is responsible for the political action, reglementation and administration of the government of the autonomous region.
The President of the Generalitat is the head of government: he or she may also appoint a First Minister (Catalan: Conseller(a) primer(a)) to serve as their deputy, although since 2006 the office has been replaced by that of the Vice-President of the Generalitat of Catalonia, who must be approved by the Parliament of Catalonia. The various ministers (Catalan: consellers) are also appointed by the President of the Generalitat. Ministers need not be deputies in the parliament, as they have an automatic right to intervene in parliamentary debates.
Serving members of the government may not be arrested for any acts committed in Catalonia, except in flagrante delicto, and may only be judged before the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia, or the Criminal Chamber of the Supreme Court outside of Catalonia.

- Department d'Interior in Catalan; Home Affairs is the "official" translation according to the Generalitat. Public Safety perhaps better capture the "idea" of the department, but Interior Department is frequently used in the English-language media for similarly named agencies in other governments despite the fact that, for example, the U.S. Department of the Interior has a much different portfolio.
