  The Original Barnstar
For your incredible magnum opus, the Lumumba Government. Fantastic work!! I've made a few edits for example to make sure that those who don't often utilize French know what a functionary is.

Should you wish to take notice of the size tag, you could move material into the Belgian Congo election 1960 and/or set up a separate article for the successor College of Commissioners-General, which deserves a separate article (in some form) anyway, and which I've redlinked. Again, thanks so much for all your hard work on this!! Buckshot06 (talk) 20:17, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Many thanks for your work on this and other related articles, both Burundian and Congolese! —Brigade Piron (talk) 16:26, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
