Ok, so it's obviously more important what their political views are and how effective they are at doing their job, but it is still gratifying to learn that Israeli female politicians are among the most beautiful in the world.
That is according to a survey conducted by the popular Spanish newspaper website, 20 Minutos. In fact, the Israeli candidates all ranked among the top 30 female politicians out of 59 in a list which includes Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton and Segolene Royal.
At the time of writing the stunning Peruvian Congresswoman Luciana Leon, 30 held the top spot with 24,094 registering to vote.
Former model Orly Levy, 34, of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, is currently in at number 13. Following in her footsteps is Pnina Rosenblum, 53, a member of the Likkud party and one time beauty queen who is 19th. At number 23 is Israel's Minister of Tourism Ruhama Avraham, 44, and at a respectable 29 is 33-year-old Anastasia Michaeli, also of Yisrael Beiteinu.
13th, Orly Levy, 35 19th, Pnina Rosenblum, 5323rd, Ruhama Avraham, 44
29th, Anastasia Michaeli, 33
Unsuprisingly no British MPs even make the list with their dowdy fashion sense and frumpy image.
But if Israeli politics leaves you cold, at least the country's MKs will help to keep you interested.
