Wrong time for referendums

I can see the value of referendums. I cannot see ruling primarily through referendums. I also think it’s unreasonable to hold a referendum in the midst of a chaotic environment. More than that, I think it’s utterly irresponsible to try and force a referendum when there is such a clear threat of public disorder and violence on both sides. All it takes is one person to get killed on the streets, and suddenly you’ve escalated a political squabble between the President and the other institutions of government into a full blown social crisis. And you can bet that everyone will wash their hands of all responsibility.
