On Sunday, 61 percent of Greek voters said 'No' to the bailout proposals tabled by Greece's international lenders and rejected by the country’s leftist government.
Strache said that reintroducing the drachma as the national currency would help to stabilize the Greek economy, while simultaneously demonstrating that switching to the euro was an erroneous decision.
Greece's main international lenders are the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Central Bank, and some Eurozone nations. The country’s debt to these creditors is estimated at about $270 billion.
Athens defaulted on a $1.7 billion loan repayment to the IMF at the end of June.
