Q 777: The Pendulum Swings To & Fro

X

This particular term that I'm looking for comes from "___". The term's origin/root essentially means "Regarding the Head" in Latin.
__X__ has been practiced by most civilizations at some point of time or the other, with the exception of the Kyivian Rus(European tribe that was disintegrated by the Mongol Invasion in the 13th Century).

The current scenario, however, is different.
58 Nations are advocates of __X__ and 96 have decided to do away with the concept altogether.
There is of course this raging debate on __X__ on many fronts.

The European Union has collectively distanced itself away from it, as Article 2 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU prohibits it.

In the UNGA, The People's Republic of China, India, the USA and Indonesia have all voted against the removal of __X___, and they being the 4t most populated countries in the world.

X is capital punishment. I'm guessing the latin word you're looking for is capital! Cheers.
