A Spanish celebrity magazine has released a run-down of the country's best looking politicians, but failed to include one party leader, who took to Twitter to complain.


Pablo Iglesias, the pony-tailed Secretary-General of Podemos took to Twitter to joke about failing to make a list of Spain's most beautiful politicians compiled by celebrity magazine Zeleb.

"Indignant that Alberto Garzón and I do not appear on the list...", the left-wing politician tweeted on Thursday to the magazine, referring to himself and Alberto Garzón, parliamentary candidate for the United Left. 

While the magazine originally tweeted back to Iglesias joking that "the list is contantly being updated, get a bit of a tan this summer and you'll be on it," it eventually succumbed to his complaints, adding both the Podemos leader and Alberto Garzón to the list. 

Those who did originally make the list include Spanish Socialist Party leader, Pedro Sánchez and leader of Ciudadanos, Albert Rivera as well as political newcomers like Madrid City Hall spokesperson, Rita Maestre. 

While Iglesias did not originally feature, his ex-girlfriend Tania Sánchez and Podemos number two Íñigo Errejón did. 

However, not surprisingly, the grey bearded Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister of Spain, did not.
