In the nip and tuck of international politics, presidential hopeful Martina Valencic seems to have a couple of advantages over her rivals.
Wealthy businesswoman Martina, 27, has declared her candidacy for the president's office in Slovenia as an anti-corruption candidate.
With her open, full frontal style - seen here in a promotional calender she posed for - is certain to make one or two of her rivals lose their deposits in November's elections.
And she certainly seems to have lots of broad support from both the right and the left.
"I own a printing company and wanted to make a nice calendar for the firm. I have no problem in posing naked.
"We are all the same under the skin and it doesn't make me a prostitute. And I do not steal like some people in office do," explained Martina.
"I support businessmen. I know that many entrepreneurs are disappointed because of bankrupt companies and lost jobs and I want to change that," she added.
And as Slovenia is a member of the EU and NATO, Martina could soon be rubbing shoulders with David Cameron and US president Barack Obama.
"It's just as well Silvio Berlusconi is out of office in Italy, or they'd never get anything done at their summits," said one political observer.
