Recruiting these candidates is a key part of new French President Emmanuel Macron’s strategy to `renovate` the country’s leadership.

“Lady Gaga of mathematics” Cédric Villani

Cédric Villani was born in 1973, is a Professor at the University of Lyon 1 and Director of the Henry Poincaré Institute of Mathematics in Paris.

The Vietnamese public may have heard the name Cédric Villani before when he and Professor Ngo Bao Chau participated in a roundtable seminar on education at L’Espace, the French Cultural Center in Hanoi in August/

Before winning nearly 70% of the votes in a southern suburb of Paris in the recent election in France, this 44-year-old mathematical genius proved to stand out more than hundreds of other candidates by always appearing.

The oversized silk bow is the `visual statement` of mathematical genius Villani, who was just elected to the French National Assembly.

Often called the “Lady Gaga” of mathematics, Villani has traveled the world convincing people that mathematics is indeed “sexy.”

Before that, Mr. Villani had not shown much interest in politics.

“Together with other people of good will, we can do something,” he said.

Self-taught information technology `witch` Mounir Mahjoubi.

It is no coincidence that a person with no political experience before this election leads President Macron’s cyber strategies.

Mr. Mounir Mahjoubi once helped Mr. Macron very actively in live-streaming election activities and making it more realistic and intimate.

That campaign strategy on cyberspace proved effective and Mr. Macron became the person with the most live-stream videos among the candidates.

But most of all, information technology `witch` Mounir Mahjoubi became a close confidant of President Macron thanks to blocking his attempt to hack and steal data just a few days before the election.

Mounir Mahjoubi is also one of the few political representatives for immigrants and minorities in France, a country where immigrants have long struggled to integrate.

The Guardian newspaper (UK) described that Mr. Mounir Mahjoubi comes from a world often considered invisible to the French white upper class, which dominates the National Assembly.

As a child, Mounir Mahjoubi wandered around Paris to use free computers in museums.

But there was no experience like when he worked as a technician for a customer service call center when he was in his teens.

“I learned from life,” Mounir Mahjoubi said about his time working here.

Mounir Mahjoubi also worked part-time at Club Internet, France’s first internet service provider, when he was just 16 years old.

Like many other “outsider” candidates, Aude Amadou did not have a strong interest in political activities before this election but was attracted to the movement initiated by young leader Emmanuel Macron.

`Orphan` economist Hervé Berville

Hervé Berville became an orphan after the genocide in Rwanda and was adopted by a couple in Brittany when he was 4 years old.

`Orphan` economist Hervé Berville is originally from Rwanda.

Last year, Hervé Berville was still working as a researcher for Stanford University in Kenya but suddenly joined politics when he realized the rise of populism after Donald Trump’s election.

`The day after Donald Trump was elected in November, I put aside work to return to France,` said Mr. Hervé Berville.

At only 27 years old, economist Hervé Berville is not the youngest candidate from President Macron’s En Marche party to be elected.

Other `unique and strange` faces under Macron

President Macron took a risk when he decided to recruit candidates with too little political experience, but he was rewarded when the Progressive Party won an absolute majority.
