Washington D.C. [USA], Apr. 6 (ANI): Turns out, Britney Spears' pop prowess can not only sway the heads, but also international politics. The 35-year-old pop princess is all set to perform at Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park in Israel for the first time ever on July 3. The overwhelming popularity for her gig has made the country's Labour Party, which was due to vote for its new leader on that day, push back their election date to July 4. In a statement, the election committee for the Labor Party did not name the 'Oops!... I Did It Again' hit-maker specifically, but did say "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," TMZ reported. Israeli journalist Tal Schneider broke the story that the Labor Party apparently made the change so their party members could reach polling stations sans all the foot traffic around. (ANI)
