Shares on the Lisbon stock exchange plummeted more than five percent on Wednesday as Portugal struggled through a deep political crisis after the resignation of two top ministers earlier in the week.

Lisbon's main PSI-20 index closed 5.31 percent lower to 5,236.49 points, with every share in the index ending the day in the red.
