Top 5 At 5: Boycotts, Rallies, and Congresses

We take a look at today's top 5 stories, beginning with Popek Popek Parliament where we recount issues such as OKUs in the public sector, humanitarian aid and online scams. Following close up is the ongoing boycott on Starbucks, as well as the permit issue faced by the Women's March Malaysia. Our top two picks are EPF's announcements on dividends and statistics on people who are covered by this retirement scheme, and the Bumiputera Economic Congress.
