Since electrons are negatively charged so they move towards the positive end of the battery i.e. electronic current is from negative potential to positive potential. And conventional current flows in opposite direction i.e. from positive potential to negative potential.
 
So, the potential is positive in the direction against the direction of electric current and it is negative in the direction of electric current.
