Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu may have bested Yair Lapid in January's election, but it was Lapid who made TIME magazine's 100 most influential people list released on Thursday, while Netanyahu was left off.

The list, published annually since 1999, places candidates into five categories: Leaders & Revolutionaries, Builders & Titans, Artists & Entertainers, Scientists & Thinkers, and Heroes & Icons, picking 20 from each list.

Lapid was listed as the sole Israeli figure among nominees in the "Leaders" category. Missing from the list this year was Netanyahu, who appeared on last year's list as well as in 2011 as 80th most influential person among TIME's readers.
