By Andrius Sytas VILNIUS (Reuters) - European Central Bank Vice President Vitor Constancio signaled on Friday that the ECB could loosen funding to Greek banks if Greeks vote 'Yes' in a referendum on Sunday on whether or not to accept more austerity in return for aid. Constancio said the significance of the referendum was in making it more or less likely that an agreement could be reached on providing financial assistance to Greece. "If there is a 'No' result, then it will be more difficult for such an agreement to be reached, Constancio said, adding that this would have consequences for ECB's analysis and decisions.

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).
