Top 5 At 5: Reforming the Electoral Agenda

Today's countdown includes:

1. We discuss a shopping trolley being hurled from a high-rise in Bangsar and the dangers that come from it.

2. Local scarf brand Lima Segi is under fire for accusations of plagiarising the keffiyeh-inspired designs of New York-based Palestinian designer, Sarah Musa. We hear some thoughts about the cultural appropriation of the keffiyeh from Azura Rahman, former host of BFM’s Style File and Ticket To Ride.

3. Following the storm that brought trees down across KL and PJ, representatives of resident associations and Kawasan Rukun Tetangga are upset with DBKL for cutting down trees without engaging with them first. Terrence Tan, an MBPJ councillor weighs in on what should be done to address these concerns.

4. A court has deemed Air Asia’s retrenchment of two engineers based on their higher salaries as “unfair and improper". Lawyer Lim Zi Han helps us understand the legalities involved in the case.

5. Our top story: Following Bangi MP Ong Kian Ming's suggestions on who should fill the chair of the Election Commission, we discuss the names he's put forth, and how they fit into the bigger picture of electoral reform.
