Top 5 At 5: Pouring Millions Into Villages

Today's countdown includes:

5. A debate on whether the posting of book excerpts on social media violates copyright laws. This is coming after an X user posted a criticism of Daiyan Trisha's new book, along with pictures taken from the pages of the book. This prompted the publisher to demand it to be taken down, saying it violated copyright laws. Syamsuriatna Ishak, a former lawyer, tells us whether there are grounds for legal action.

4. With seven Bersatu lawmakers switching allegiance to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the unity government, more by-elections may be on the cards. Wong Chin Huat, a Professor of Political Science from Sunway University, comments on what this means for Bersatu moving forward.

3. Ahead of the Kuala Kubu Bharu by-elections, we hear messages from Parti Rakyat Malaysia candidate, Hafizah Zainuddin and Pakatan candidate Pang Sock Tao.

2. The passing of Dewan Negara president, Datuk Mutang Tunggal at the age of 69-years old, who was the first Dayak to hold the position.

1. The Madani village adoption programme, which was tabled with a RM100 million allocation, is being touted as the best solution to resolve issues faced by rural communities. For this, we speak in-depth with Maalini Ramalo, Director of Social Protection, Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas.
