Abstract

What would defeat in Sunday’s referendum mean for Alexis Tsipras and his Greek government? Kyriakos Moumoutzis writes that while Tsipras has argued for a ‘No’ vote on the basis that it would strengthen the country’s hand in future negotiations with its creditors, the uncertainty experienced in Greece since the referendum announcement is likely to increase the prospects for a ‘Yes’ vote. He argues that if a ‘Yes’ vote does occur then the Greek Prime Minister would be correct to follow through on his apparent pledge to resign should he lose the referendum.
