Top 5 At 5: The PM's Visit to Melbourne

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Some updates from the Dewan Rakyat, including discussions on Sabah's water issues, the when's and the what's surrounding the tabling of the Social Work Profession Bill and criticisms on the government's non-pensionable permanent employment scheme.

2. The waters around the Mersing Islands being gazetted to protect our sea cows.

3. Calls to pause changes to our citizenship act by former Former Deputy Minister of Law and Institutional Reform, Ramkarpal Singh, who said the amendments to the act are illogical and unreasonable.

4. A report by Human Rights Watch that promises made to reform policies for migrants and refugees have not been fulfilled.

5. And our top story, the bilateral relations between Malaysia and Australia, following the Prime Minister's visit to Melbourne.

For these stories, we heard from Jillian Ooi, Azira Aziz as well as HRW researcher Shayna Bauchner.
