Israel reschedule election to 'avoid clash with Britney Spears concert'

Seeing Britney perform live (sort of) or voting in an election – tough choice?

The pop princess is set to play her first ever show in Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park on July 3, so managing to bag a ticket to hear her belt out hits such as Toxic and Womaniser is A. Very. Big. Deal.

So much so, that the country’s Labour Party, which was due to vote for its new leader on that day, has ended up moving the election so it takes place the following day, July 4.

While the party may not have mentioned Britney by name, a party spokesperson did tell the Times Of Israel that it made more sense to delay the election by a day.

‘The election date was delayed by one day due to the fact that there is a major event at Yarkon Park on July 3, 2017,’ they said.

The party spokesperson also claimed that because of Britney’s gig, there had been ‘a difficulty in recruiting security guards’ for the election.

And that moving the date of the primaries would ‘make it easier for people to reach polling stations’, because of the heavy traffic expected in the city.

It was not revealed whether any of the party members would be using the opportunity to attend Britney’s gig.
