Abstract: 

There exists in the literature of political sociology a paradoxical relationship between corruption and political stability. Some researchers believe that corruption tends to create political instability; others claim that corrupt governors buy their opponents in a manner conforming to the rule of political corruption. This article adopts the conservative approach; one that claims corruption tends to create political instability.
Moreover, the authors here add the effect of income inequality to such a relationship and claim that income inequality can regulate this relation to the effect that it as a mediator can accentuate the impact of control of political corruption on political stability. The authors' claim is tested by the data gathered by some international institutions for 208 countries in the period of 1996-2009. Results support the authors claim about the effect of control of political corruption on political stability. Yet as to the regulatory effect of income inequality on this relationship, results show a week influence in total. Such results are indicative that only in Asian countries this effect is significant.
