As the Greek government's decision to take international bailout offer of its creditors into referendum on July 5 opened a wide argument and grind Greece's economy into a halt, details of the referendum that will determine the future of the country and the eurozone are also coming to light.

Several Greek media outlets published the draft ballot to be used in the referendum on Monday, which was quickly spread over social media.

Answers that will determine the country's future are read as 'Ohi' (No) and 'Nai' (Yes).In the yes-or-no referendum, Greek citizens will be asked the following question (English translation taken from GreekReporter.com): "Should the draft agreement, tabled by the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund to the Eurogroup of June 25, 2015, consisting of two parts, be accepted? The first document is titled "Reforms for the completion of the Current Program and Beyond" and the second "Preliminary Debt sustainability analysis."

Cash-stripped Greece has 1.6 billion euros payment to International Monetary Fund (IMF) due oin June 30, Thursday, while an additional 6.6 billion euros should be paid to the European Central Bank by the end of August. If Greece fails to make the 1.6 billion payment as of tomorrow, the country will fall into default.

After weeks of unfruitful talks with its creditors, Greek government decided to take creditors' final offer into referendum.
