Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday attacked the inner-party opposition of ruling SYRIZA of seeking to manipulate the outcome of this month's bailout referendum.   

“The Greek people voted 'no' to a bad deal, they did not vote for an exit from the euro,” Tsipras said in an interview with Sto Kokkino radio.

“Now some people are trying to manipulate [the result],” he said.

Tsipras said he had no regrets about the government's handling of negotiations with foreign lenders over the past five months, adding that the economic damage caused by capital controls is “reversible.”
