Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's government is asking Greece's voters to vote "No" in a weekend referendumA new survey Friday ahead of Greece's make-or-break weekend referendum showed a swing against the government to a 'Yes' result, amid a sense of crisis fuelled by cash rationing and burgeoning protests. The poll by Greece's Alco institute said 44.8 percent of Greeks intend to vote 'Yes' and 43.4 percent are for 'No' -- making it the first published survey to give a lead to the 'Yes' vote ahead of Sunday's ballot. Tsipras argues a 'No' would strengthen his hand in negotiating better terms from Greece's international creditors, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB).
