Top 5 At 5: Regal Enforcement, Progressive Wages and Airport Expansions

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we look at talks on hosting the Commonwealth Games, complaints on police personnel, and foundlings' citizenship.

2. Hari Raya is fast approaching and parents are worried that celebrations will be dimmed in the face of rising costs, especially when the school year just started earlier this month. We discuss how families can deal with overlapping costs.

3. The Subang Airport Regeneration Plan commences with the expansion of the city airport, which will bring with it 8000 new jobs by 2030.

4. Pasir Gudang MP Hassan Abdul Karim commented on the Agong's new role as the honorary commissioner chief of police due to possible legal implications that may expose the Agong to prosecution, under the Rome Statute and the International Criminal Court.

5. Our top story: We're joined by PSM's Deputy Chairperson, to discuss his thoughts on the Progressive Wage Policy - of which the pilot project is expected to launch in June this year.

For these stories, we heard from founder and blogger of RinggitOhRinggit Suraya Zainuddin, head of KLIA Aeropolis Randhill Singh, and lawyer Fahri Azzat.
