Pro Rep usually produces more stable governance than First-Past-The-Post. This is because Pro Rep tends to result in multi-party coalition majorities, so that policy depends on the consensus of at least two leaders rather than being at the flighty whim of a single leader.

The less proportional and the more winner take all a country is, the less stable its government is.
