English term or phrase: accountability
I'm quite confused, as in this piece I'm translating wth regards to the integrity of politicians, the words "responsibility, accountable and accountability" often appears in the same sentence..I understand what the interviewee is trying to say, but the Malay terms are often interchangeable and it sounds so confusing to the reader if I use like, "tanggungjawab, kerbertanggungjawapan dan tertanggungjawabkan" in the same breath.

kebertanggungjawapan
Explanation:
here's my shot at it:

Leadership and accountability - the essence of accountability is discharging one's responsibility, being accountable ... => Kepimpinan dan kebertanggungjawapan - ciri penting kebertanggungjawapan ialah menyempurnakan kewajipan, kesanggupan mempertanggungjawab...

Breakdowns and alternative translations:

- Leadership and accountability = Kepimpinan dan kebertanggungjawapan

- essence of accoutability = ciri penting/asas/tunjang/teras kebertanggungjawapan

- discharging responsibility = menyempurnakan/melaksanakan/menjalankan kewajipan/amanah/tanggungjawab

- being accountable = bersikap bertanggungjawab (terhadap)/ (kesanggupan) mempertanggungjawab/ (kesanggupan) memikul tanggungjawab
