The Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras has sprung a surprise referendum on his European partners, who were reportedly very annoyed and sharply ended negotiations.
Now, the leaders of places such as Berlin, Madrid and Helsinki can see an opportunity to rid the Eurozone of a “troublesome leader”. In the current status, EU leaders are all trying to define the referendum taking place next Sunday.
Greece must choose whether they wish to remain a single currency economy, German Vice-Chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel stated it’s the case of a simple yes or no to staying in the euro.
Matteo Renzi, the Italian Prime Minister, said the referendum was a battle of currencies between the drachma and the euro. They know the votes so far suggest that the majority of Greeks want to stay in the Eurozone which is precisely what they want this altercation to be about.
President of the EC Mr Jean-Claude blamed Mr Tsipras of playing poker with Europe’s future. In this game, commenting that he wishes for the Greek government to adhere to their rules or the EC will do everything within its control to overthrow him in Sunday’s referendum.
