The distinguished economist Thomas Piketty will work with the labour sociologist Dominique Méda, openly opposed to his idea of minimum income for all during the primary campaign. The philosopher Sandra Laugier will direct this « think-tank ». Mathieu Hanotin, loyal follower of the candidate and Jean Marc Germain, close to Martine Aubry, will be his campaign directors. Finally, Hamon will count on seven spokespeople, among which Aïssata Seck, from Montebourg’s team, as well as Aurélie Filippetti. Two people close to François Hollande also joined him, Frédérique Espagnac and Sébastien Denaja.
