accommodation

Help please on the correct translation of the word "accommodation" in the following context:

"To truly reflect a democratic society, and a single election won't ensure a democratic society, the new governing party must demonstrate accommodation of other points of view"

I think the word "aceptacion" would be a good choice, however, I wonder if there is a better alternative than this one.

Thanks

    Hola bayone,
    ¿Porque no ''acomodacio'n''?
    To ''accomodate'' seems to imply more than just to accept that others have different views; it implies that some effort is made to adapt, or compromise, or in some way make decisions with others' needs and opinions in mind.

    You may also say: "respeto".

    You usually say "Respetar otros puntos de vista".

    It would be like "El partido que conforma el nuevo gobierno debe contemplar con respeto otras posibles alternativas..."

    I also changed "otros puntos de mira" to "posibles alternativas". We usually say "posibles alternativas" rather than "otros puntos de mira" in politics though it depends a lot on the context.

    Puesto que a mí la palabra 'acomodación' no me suena "natural" en español, sugiero parafrasear un poco:

    the new governing party must demonstrate accommodation of other points of view = el nuevo partido en el poder debe demostrar la capacidad de darle cabida/espacio a otros puntos de vista

    Saludos... y bienvenido(a) a los foros, Bayonne. :)

    Muchas gracias a todos por sus sugerencias, opino, al igual que Laura, que la palabra "acomodacion" no cabe de una manera muy natural en este contexto, al mismo tiempo la palabra "respeto" no implica necesariamente que se sepa encontrar una manera de implementar opiniones de otros en la politica. La sugerencia de Laura es precisa, el nuevo partido politico "debe demostrar la capacidad de darle cabida" a otros puntos de vista.

    Nuevamente, gracias a todos

    How would you translate the following?

    We welcome children with disabilities and make reasonable accommodations for such children.

    Accommodation literalmente significa acomodar , dar alojamiento, creo que esto es lo que viene a decir la frase , recibir ,acojer nuevas ideas en este caso
