Britney Spears has a show in Tel Aviv on July 3rd, and it’s a big deal; it’s the first performance in Israel by the pop princess, and local music promoters have been working on this date since last year as part of her upcoming world tour.
There’s just one problem: July 3rd ̶i̶s̶ ̶ was also the date set for the country’s Labour Party to hold its leadership primary. Both events were scheduled for the same day, in the same city, and officials realized this could potentially lead to more than a few problems; traffic congestion delaying those heading to the polls, and a lack of sufficient security to cover both events.
The solution: postpone the leadership vote by a day! Based on Twitter reactions (below), fans will be singing their way to the polls:
they literally postponed the election in israel bc britney is coming…can someone say legend? https://t.co/wkjn50bHM2

As news emerges of Britney Spears turning the political system of Israel on it’s head, we ask COULD SHE HAVE STOPPED BREXIT?
