The Israeli Labor Party (HaAvoda) has decided to postpone its primary election due to the upcoming Britney Spears concert, which is scheduled for July 3 in Tel Aviv. The election committee of the political party decided to delay the election by one day so that it would not fall on the same day as the concert.

In the announcement, Spears was not mentioned by name but the election committee said that “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.”
