India’s political risk outlook changed to negative from neutral and the country slipped two notches in Eurasia Group’s rankings last month on concerns about monetary tightening and exit from economic stimulus. India ranked 12th with a score of 62 in the January rankings, down from 10th place with a score of 63 in December. Russia and China, with an identical score of 63, moved ahead of India.

Pakistan ranked last with a score of 43 and a neutral outlook on worries that President Asif Ali Zardari’s fight for survival would distract the government from effective policymaking and governance.
The Global Political Risk index (GPRI) is a composite measure of a country’s government, society, security and economy. While the score indicates stability or instability for the month gone by, the outlook signals which way the score will move. Mint has partnerned with Eurasia Group for GPRI and runs this every month.
