“A temporary political uncertainty was occurred due to two reasons:
1. There was a rumor that budget would be defeated and the strong government in the center would be toppled.
2. After defecting of one minster from government - as another presidential candidate, and false rumors of mass crossovers.
This uncertainty was clouded for the investor community in the Colombo stock market in last week, and there was a drastically drop (around 500 continuously) in market indicators. After the end of political drama carried out by opposition political parties in Sri Lanka, It was clear that the government in the center is still very strong, therefore, all the investor community (foreign & local) actively and positively got involved again in the market, lifting indicatosr by 121.78 points. Political, economic and social stability established by the present government has proven economic growth in every sector, including Colombo stock market” - Global Investors' Guide
