With almost all the ballots counted, results from the Greek referendum show voters decisively rejecting the terms of an international bailout.
Figures published by the interior ministry showed nearly 62% of those whose ballots had been counted voting “No”, against 38% voting “Yes”.
Greece’s governing Syriza party had campaigned for a “No”, saying the bailout terms were humiliating.
Their opponents warned that this could see Greece ejected from the eurozone.
“Today we celebrate the victory of democracy, but tomorrow all together we continue and complete a national effort for exiting this crisis,” Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in a televised address.
