Top 5 At 5: Resolution For Ceasefire in Gaza

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we cover updates from the Dewan Rakyat. Today, we look at the possible impact of the the SST increase, the decline in STEM interest from students as well as discussions on the low registration rate of PADU, particularly among non-Malays.

2. Calls to reconsider the amendments to the citizenship law, ahead of its second reading in parliament tomorrow. Civil society groups have labelled these amendments as regressive.

3. The introduction of artificial intelligence in primary schools curriculums starting in 2027.

4. Suggestions to increase student quota for Indians in Matriculation.

5. And today's top story: The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution demanding a ceasefire in Gaza during Ramadan.

For these stories, we heard from Maalini Ramalo, director of Social Protection for the Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas, Danutcha Catriona Singh, the managing director of the SOLS Foundation. We also heard from Paniirselvam Jayarama, assistant director of the Constituency Coordination Department of APPGM-SDG and Senator Dato’ Sivaraj Chandran.
