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.

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.
