EU's democracy to be put to the test

Alexis Tsipras's government will adopt a different attitude to Greece's creditors in future, the liberal daily Delo believes: "After the general elections in January and the rejection of its proposals by the creditors for the past six months, the Tsipras government took a risky and politically irrational step with this referendum. The 'oxi', or no, now gives it the mandate for a more resolved stance. This is not, however, a mandate for leaving the Eurozone, let alone the EU. That was never an option. Now the ball is in the court of the European officials and financial experts. Until now they haven't taken the democratically elected Greek politicians seriously. Their reaction to the clear no from the Greek population will show how democratic the EU really is."
