Is the government stable?
Panama's government is very stable. The government is a constitutional democracy and since 1994 every election has been regarded as fair. Corruption and influence still get grumbled about, but by and large Panama’s government is healthier than ever. During its first hundred years of existence, Panama’s government went through rapid changes of leadership and constitutional amendments. These days, however, things have settled down and there is greater stability within the government. Panama does not have a regular, active military but it does have several public forces, including the Panamanian National Police, the National Air-Naval Service, and the National Border Service.
