The final result of the Greek referendum saw 61.3 per cent of voters reject the proposal, with 38.7 per cent voting in favour. We asked some of EUROPP’s contributors for their reactions to the result and what it could mean for Greece’s future in the Eurozone. Kyriakos Moumoutzis: “To ‘live life on their own terms’ is to live life outside the Eurozone” Jonathan White: “The wider anti-austerity movement is likely to continue to make itself heard” Lorenzo Codogno: “In the long term, this whole saga may turn out to be positive as it may trigger a much-needed clarification on Eurozone governance and the future of the Union” Nikitas Konstantinidis: “Greece is fast degenerating into a regime of illiberal Chavism and there is not much Europeans can do to stem this tide” Eri Bertsou: “The big question is what Tsipras will choose to do next”
