Britney Spears’ concert in Tel Aviv this summer has pushed back the day for a major Israeli’s political party’s primary election.

According to a report Wednesday by the Times of Israel, the 35-year-old pop singer’s appearance in the country at Hayarkon Park happened to fall on the same day as ballots were to be cast for the leader of the Labor Party.  (RELATED: Britney Spears Blew Her Fans’ Minds When She Posted This Bikini Photo)

With the struggle to get enough security guards recruited for both events and the traffic nightmare that would ensue, Israeli leaders decided to move their election to the following day. The decision they said would “make it easier for people to reach polling stations.” (RELATED: Britney Spears Shows Off Some Wild Dance Moves At Home)

When asked if the current party chair, Isaac Herzog, would be attending the concert, a spokesperson for the leader only would answer that he was “unaware of plans for the incumbent Labor leader to attend.”

On Tuesday, the singer shared a video of her getting toned and staying in shape for her Las Vegas show on Instagram with her 15.8 million followers. In the clip, she sported a white string bikini top with black workout stretch pants.
