Les étoiles montantes du nouveau gouvernement de François Hollande
That is, the rising stars who will be part of M. Hollande's administration
François Hollande promised a new government, respectful of la parité hommes-femmes (parity among men and women) and open to la jeunesse et la diversité (youth and diversity).
Used figuratively in this context, the expression étoiles montantes, refers to those personalities whose political careers are on the rise.
The expression des étoiles montantes appeared in this article from france24.fr which provides a portrait of several politicians who are likely to become part of M. Hollande's new team.
