Tsipras: Greek referendum will go ahead despite talks

PM Alexis Tsipras

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has vowed to push on with his plan for a referendum this Sunday on the recent proposals from the country’s creditors.

In a televised national address, Mr Tsipras also reaffirmed his support for a “no” vote in the referendum.

He insisted that a “no” vote would not put Greece’s place in the euro or in the European Union at risk.

Mr Tsipras said Europe must stop acting in an “undemocratic way” and sought to reassure Greeks that their bank deposits were safe.
