As for the impact of the new appointments on financial markets, analysts of FINAM group note that the business community and society as a whole are now in demand for a new concept of economic development. Such a concept can be it is presented through both specific personnel appointments and the unveiling of new concepts and programs. And here, not only the new Prime Minister's personality is important, but also the personal composition of the government as a whole. Equally important is the structure of the new Cabinet, as well as the public disclosure of plans by its key figures. If there will be no new landmark appointments or changes in the government structure, no new ideas and programs, and we can expect disappointed investors and sell-offs on the stock market. If the changes are really significant and aimed at solving structural problems in the economy, the stock market may begin to cycle heights.
