The branch of government that has the power to make appointments?
In the US, the US president nominates, for example, executive branch department heads and US Supreme Court justices. When his or her nominations are approved by the Senate, they take their "appointed" positions. For the most part the nominations are approved by the Senate. With that said, the president does make direct appointments. The position that heads the US Patent Office is a presidential appointment. The Senate is not involved.

What is a presidential appointment?
A presidential appointment is one to a position in the judicial branch, the presidential Cabinet, or in any federal agency within the behemoth that is our bureaucracy. Many appointees undergo a nomination process where they are either confirmed or rejected by the United State Senate. There are several thousand other appointments to other positions as members of boards and heads of agencies which do not require confirmation. Those which require confirmation by the Senate are designated in the Constitution or in legislation which establishes the position involved. Military commissions require confirmation, as well.
