Government

Which is a more stable governmental system?

Authoritarian or Democratic?

I know democratizing countries can be more unstable.

However, authoritarian countries like China and Russia are becoming more centralized and are limiting civil liberties in their country.They operate more towards coercion, which keeps the population in control. This can often make their governments stable and can run smoothly. So, my question is "Even when democratizing a country, is democracies or authoritarian governments more stable?
