Greece Votes 'No' to Austerity Measures For Bailout


Greece overwhelmingly rejected the austerity measures demanded in return for bailout money as the country's banks run critically low on funds. The euro fell sharply  on Monday (local time) in Asia-Pacific trading after opinion polls were released. The Greek government said 61.3 percent of those voting in the referendum had backed the government's Syriza party and rejected the bailout conditions. "This does two things: it legitimizes the stance of the Greek government and it leaves the ball in Europe's court," ANZ Bank analysts said in a note. "Europe either folds or Greece goes bankrupt; over to you Merkel." Athens' partners have warned over the past week that a 'No' vote would mean cutting bridges with Europe and driving Greece's crippled financial system into outright bankruptcy, dramatically worsening the country's 5-year-long depression.
