Abstract: Who Becomes Minister in the DRC is a newly created database that provides information on members of government. The purpose of this article is to present the database and to document some facts about the background of political leaders. The database covers the period 2000-2016. The profile of politicians in this database is as follows: born mainly in the DRC, a Congolese minister is a 50-year-old male and Swahili-speaking, with a bachelor's degree mainly in law or economics. Finally, some avenues likely to be explored for future research with this database are indicated.
