ATHENS, July 5. /TASS / So far, 61.24% of Greeks voted against the creditor's proposal on Greek debt, the Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reform announced on Sunday, after counting 51.88% of the votes.
Those who voted for the proposal presented by the lenders total 38.76% as of 10pm Athens time (GMT +3).
The Greek citizens were deciding whether to accept or reject a government draft agreement submitted by the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund at a meeting of the Euro Group on June 25. The creditors' document consists of two parts: Reforms for the completion of the current program and Preliminary analysis of debt sustainability. Based on the preliminary results, the creditors position does not suit the country's population.
However, the vast majority of citizens are in favor of the continuation of Greek's membership in the euro zone. Therefore it would be a misunderstanding to interpret the vote "no" on the referendum as a refusal to continue negotiations by the Greek with its international creditors.
