Israel Postpones Election Because Of Britney Spears’ Concert

One of Israel’s biggest political parties has a key election coming up. But they had to delay it. Party bosses quickly ran into that age-old problem of trying to schedule democracy around Britney Spears concerts.

The Labor Party was slated to cast ballots for a new chairperson on July 3 in Tel Aviv, the same day America’s pop icon is scheduled to perform at the city’s Hayarkon Park. For some reason, the Labor Party couldn’t compete with her popularity that day, so they decided to push their vote back a day.

A Labor Party spokesperson told the Times of Israel pushing back the vote would “make it easier for people to reach polling stations” lest they get caught in the concert-goers’ traffic. The spokesperson also said they’d had “a difficulty recruiting security guards” for their vote, since apparently most are busy staffing the concert.
