One cannot simply withdraw a bill that has been held in abeyance by a Constitutional Instrument (CI).

The President cannot speak to the EC through TV broadcasts.
The EC cannot suspend the referendum unless CI 120(13) is annulled. The bill cannot be withdrawn while there is a CI based on it! To annul the CI requires the vote of 2/3 majority of MPs.

Will the Electoral Commission assert its independence and defy the lawless president?
