Top 5 At 5: Oppenheimer Sweeps The Oscars

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. A mini sampler of today's parliament session, which involves discussion on foreign workers "causing unnecessary competition among locals", medicine prices as well as an outlook on our tourism this year.

2. An overview of the Women's March that happened during the weekend, which has culminated in the organisers being summoned by the police, over conduct during the march. For this, we heard from Ruhaishah Zulkifli, Communications & Media Officer at KRYSS.

3. The Oscar results are out, and so we bring back the Popcorn Culture gang to talk about the biggest snub and surprises.

4. The government's announcement of shorter working hours for female civil servants, to allow for more family time (which has received quite a bit of pushback online).

5. And for our top story, the Perikatan Nasional convention, and their desire to bring on more non-Malay votes.
