Gallery: Meet the 23 richest politicians in the world

Money, meet power. Power, money.

No one goes into politics to get rich, but politicians happen to be some of the wealthiest figures around the globe.

German newspaper Die Welt’s World’s Luxury Guide section recently released a list of the world’s richest politicians, and from local officials and parliamentarians to foreign ministers and royal heirs, the list includes newcomers and regulars alike.

Leaders without any real involvement in matters of state, like Bhumibol Adulyad, King of Thailand were excluded from the list.
