Top 5 At 5: Russians Poll & Borneo Burns

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. The Russian presidential elections, and we're spotlighting a few things, including Vladimir Putin's likely win, online voting being a first for the Russians as well as political and cultural interests of Russians (and why it's significant to our region.)

2. The issue of overcrowding in SK Cyberjaya, which has culminated in a relocation of students to nearby schools.

3. Gua Lepak, a popular food court eatery operating within Batu Caves, being given an eviction notice. Apparently, they have been operating without legal authorisation.

4. Eight districts in Sabah have been identified to have hardcore poverty rates exceeding the national average.

5. And today's top story: The extreme climate situation in Sabah and Sarawak.

For these stories, we heard from Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim, Chairperson, Parent Action Group for Education, Dr Lim Teck Wyn, Adjunct Professor of Ecology at University of Nottingham Malaysia and also Kapayan Assemblyperson, Jannie Lasimbang.
