Arvind Kejriwal, leader of the upstart Aam Aadmi Party that is forming the new government in New Delhi, on Tuesday unveiled members of his cabinet.

On Monday, Mr. Kejriwal agreed to take support from the Congress Party to become Delhi’s chief minister. This came two weeks after Delhi’s legislative assembly election results showed no clear winner.

Mr. Kejriwal’s new cabinet, comprising former lawyers and journalists, among others, will be the youngest in Delhi’s recent history. While outgoing Congress ministers have an average age of 63, according to the Hindustan Times, the new ministers, on average, are in their thirties.

Here’s a look at some of the key members of the new Delhi cabinet:

Arvind Kejriwal, 45, founded the Aam Aadmi, or Common Man, Party last year to “change the way politics is done” and “clean up the system from the inside,” he told The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Kejriwal graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, with a degree in mechanical engineering, and worked as an income tax officer in the Indian Revenue Service.

He came into the limelight as an anti-graft activist three years ago, when he lobbied alongside prominent activist Anna Hazare, to demand that the government pass anticorruption law, the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Though Mr. Hazare didn’t support the Aam Aadmi Party, Mr. Kejriwal got support from other activists and Delhi citizens.

He surprised almost everyone earlier this month, by beating Delhi’s longtime chief minister Sheila Dixit by more than 25,000 votes, according to the Election Commission of India. Mr. Kejriwal will be the youngest chief minister of Delhi in at least two decades.

Manish Sisodia, 41, considered the closest aide of Mr. Kejriwal, was a journalist before he joined the Aam Aadmi Party.

Mr. Sisodia has worked for Zee News channel and All India Radio, according to his bio on the party website. He was part of the campaign to pass the Lokpal Bill, and prior to that the Right to Information Act, which allows any citizen to request and receive information from the government, his bio said.

In the Delhi election, Mr. Sisodia defeated Nakul Bhardwaj of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Patparganj by more than 11,000 votes.

Somnath Bharti, 39, is a lawyer-turned-politician who holds a degree in science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and a law degree from the University of Delhi.

Before entering politics, Mr. Bharti practiced law before the Supreme Court of India, according to his personal website.

In December 2012, he defended eight men who were detained on suspicion of beating a police officer to death. He succeeded in getting the murder charges dropped, according to Mr. Bharti’s website.

In the recent elections, Mr. Bharti contested from Malviya Nagar neighborhood and beat Bharatiya Janata Party’s Arti Mehra and Congress’s Kiran Walia.

Saurabh Bharadwaj, 34, is a graduate of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi, where he studied engineering. Before joining politics, he worked as a software engineer for a multinational company in Gurgaon, according to his website.

In the south Delhi neighborhood of Greater Kailash, Mr. Bharadwaj defeated the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Ajay Kumar Malhotra by roughly 13,000 votes.

Rakhi Birla, at 26, is the youngest member of the new cabinet. She holds a master’s degree in journalism and has worked at a private news channel, according to her bio on the Aam Aadmi party website.

Ms. Birla contested from the Mongolpuri district in West Delhi, and beat Congress candidate Raj Kumar Chauhan by more than 10,000 votes.
