Thugocracy is a better, and more descriptive word. However, we already have a word synonymous with it. Oligarchy.
Still. Both words aren't without their merits.

Merriam Webster says…thugocracy and ineptocracy go hand in hand
We the People
“We the People are the Rightful Masters of both Congress & the Courts, not to Overthrow the Constitution, but Overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”~Abraham Lincoln- "A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

OP, can you clarify what you mean by ''least capable'' of leading?
Otherwise somebody needs to revoke this guys account.
Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης - kleptēs, "thief" and κράτος - kratos, "power, rule", hence "rule by thieves") is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service. This type of government corruption is often achieved by the embezzlement of state funds.
