With Israel’s national elections a week away, politicians are doing their best to make an impression on voters. But which of these well-spoken candidates has the power to move a nation to its feet while also turning heads?

Thankfully, this question has recently been answered by the Israeli Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery. The group held a poll where 300 women between the ages of 20-60 were asked to rate Knesset members according to their attractiveness.

According to a report by The Times of Israel, Yesh Atid chief Yair Lapid was voted the most attractive male politician, with 39% of women polled believing him to be the best looking. Moshe Kahlon came in second, with 8% of voters’ support. Isaac Herzog of the Zionist Union received 4% of the votes, and both Gilad Erdan and Yisrael Katz both getting 2%. Eli Yishai managed to scrounge up a measly 1% of the votes, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t receive a single vote.

Ayelet Shaked, the Jewish Home MK, came out on top amongst the female politicians, getting 20% of the votes. Surprisingly, Orly Levy-Abekasis of Yisrael Beytenu, who happens to be a former fashion model, only got 15% of votes. Tzipi Livni and Stav Shaffir tied with just 3% each, while Zahava Gal-on, Miri Regev, and Shelly Yachimovich all tied with 2%.
