Greece's Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, center, waves to his supporters after voting at a polling station in Athens, Sunday, July 5, 2015. Greeks were voting Sunday in a bailout referendum that will decide the country's future, with opinion polls showing people evenly split on whether to accept creditors' proposals for more austerity in exchange for rescue loans or defiantly reject the deal. (AP Photo/Petr David Josek)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece faced an uncharted future as its interior ministry predicted Sunday that more than 60 percent of voters in a hastily called referendum had rejected creditors' demands for more austerity in exchange for rescue loans.

A ballot box is emptied by a voting official at the closing of polling stations in AthensBy Karolina Tagaris and Lefteris Papadimas ATHENS (Reuters) - Greeks voted overwhelmingly "No" on Sunday in a historic bailout referendum, partial results showed, defying warnings from across Europe that rejecting new austerity terms for fresh financial aid would set their country on a path out of the euro. With nearly a fifth of the votes counted, official figures showed 60.4 percent of Greeks on course to reject a bailout offer from creditors that was the official issue of the ballot. Officials from the Greek government, which had argued that a 'No' vote would strengthen its hand to secure a better deal from international creditors after months of wrangling, immediately said they would try to restart talks with European partners.

Greeks voted by a large margin to reject the austerity terms of an aid package from international creditors, an official projection of the final result of Sunday's referendum showed. "The assessment of Singular Logic is that the result in favor of 'No' will exceed 61 percent," an official from Singular Logic, which processes the results for the interior ministry said. The result would hand a big victory to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who urged voters to say 'No' to an aid package he called a national "humiliation" and an "ultimatum" from creditors.
