This paper examines the nexus between governments, human right organisations and electorates on elections in relation to economic development through human capacity building templates of society. The society problems, the complexities of business cycle and development that we face today, is leadership inability to handle democratic indices and draw a line between marginal utility and social value. The conflict line services of affluence that is measured on regressional competition is grossly taking over the political field and true democracy becoming unattainable feat in most economies of the world, and particularly in Nigeria. This finding reveals that most politicians think it is not necessary to learn the specific bases of power as they are meant to provide a sense of the variety and complexity of power, and not as an exhaustive list of its important sources. In developing countries it is of essence to make all political template in the field of play favourable to even development, so that, positive government actions permeate all channels in the process. This research examines the broad principles of all about politics especially, about the politics of democracies, like the United States, Britain, the State of Israel, and Italy, et cetera. The relationship between the Nigerian government, human right organisations, the electorate and social security and peace needs to be harmonised for secured tranquillity in our society. The findings of this study reveal that politics and economic development, elections, democracy, electorates and human right organisations has a nexus that cannot be overemphasised. This is because the growth of economy is dependent on how the indices of these compound templates are harmonised. According to Shively (2001), “Despite the complexity and elusiveness of power, we can say that all politics is based on some form of power and that its sources may be highly varied. For most practical applications of politics, however, it is not necessary to specify in detail exactly what sort of power is involved.
This study contributes in the existing literature on politics and development of nations, good governance and rewards. This study uses new estimation methodology that is focused on poverty reduction to near zero aggregate of every electoral population. This study documents that leaders has to be more objective towards change management and good governance.

The world is facing with the environmental degradation. Mainly human behaviour is the responsible of this matter. Malaysian government as a part of the world tries to protect the environment. Along with this way, government aims to encourage the public to change their behaviour towards the environment. Therefore, government has been promoted green products for the desired consumers. This study as a primary one aims to discover the awareness of Malaysian people about the green products in the market. In addition, it is aimed to measure the likelihood of intention of consumers to purchase green products. Chi-square analysis and binary logistic regression were applied.
This study contributes in the existing literature on green consumerism and the influential factors on this behaviour which uses new estimation methodology applying the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). Moreover, the study is one of very few studies which have investigated in Malaysia in terms of measuring the intention of Malaysian consumers to purchase green products. The paper contributes the first logical analysis by employment of chi-square analysis and the logistic regression. Additionally, the paper documents for both local and international green product market to clear the potential green product consumers.
