The research methodology is also not included in the introduction chapter to inform the reader about the approach adapted by the author to address the issue.

- The second hypothesis attempts to deduce a direct causal relationship between the different forms of government with the integration level of ICT. The author includes literature regarding the relationship between the form of government and the number of foreign investments in this hypothesis but does not address the relationship between the integration of ICT and the form of government in the society.

However, the research approach has not been specified i.e. the author does not mention if a deductive approach is
