governability
Explanation:
For Latin Americans today, discussion of how to promote stable and democratic governments means focusing above all else on the questions of governability and civilian control over the military. Governability is a broad term which essentially conveys the idea that a political system has sufficient legitimacy with all the competing sectors of society so that each is willing to compromise in order that the system survive.
