I think more likely would be a reactionary force allowed to the Cardassian government through the agreement with the Federation, say to counter Klingon aggression and to deal with increasing hostility from Gul Madred. It makes sense, that the Federation is involved against the Klingons and Romulans, that maybe the Cardassians would be focused on internal problems and possibly some border issues with Klingons. Also, I'm inclined to disagree that the current Cardassian government is weak. They are a democratic body, but one of their main leaders is Elim Garak, and he happens to be very good at making certain things happen properly, especially when properly motivated. The casualty reports at the end of the Dominion War from the Jem'Hadar's attempted extermination of his race would probably be sufficient impetus for him to set security in place to prevent a dictatorship rising again.
