Election Postponed in Israel Due to Britney Spears’ Concert



Britney Spears

Britney Spears‘ concert scheduled for July 3 in Tel Aviv, Israel has led to the postponement of an election in the country.

Election Postponed in Israel after it fell on the same Date with Britney Spears’ Concert

The concert fell on the same day the Israeli Labor Party was planning on holding their primary election. Due to safety concerns and traffic, the party has decided to delay their election until the day after the 35-year-old entertainer performs on stage.

“We delayed the vote one day, to July 4. We couldn’t hire enough security for the election because of the Britney Spears concert on July 3. There would also be a lot of traffic and roadblocks that would make it hard for the vote to go ahead.

We aren’t concerned about voters favoring Spears over the party. The two main concerns are security and traffic,” CNN quoted Labor Party spokesman Liron Zach as saying.

This will be Britney‘s first time performing in Israel, and her first world tour since 2011. The concert is part of her Asia tour that includes performances in Japan and the Philippines.

    I didn’t realise that even bellanaija readers rush to comment before reading or as in this case, without reading the article.
    Its a party’s primary election that was postponed, not the country’s election. Which to me is reasonable.

      Yes Diamond, the reader of the world, we know.

      And in any case, it’s still a ridiculous notion that any election, in any country, of any scale, should be postponed because Britney is in town.

      Exactly. Besides it’s one of the major parties. Very ridiculous. Imagine APC postponing election cos Chris Brown or someone is in town and having a concert

    If this had happened in Nigeria the comment section would be filled with outrage and insults against a clueless and inept government that prioritizes entertainment above public affairs.
