    Lightbulb a social or political matter that affects the interests of a lot of people.

    Hello,
    What does 'interest ' mean here?


    Issue is a subject or problem that is often
    discussed or argued about, especially a social or political matter that affect sthe interests of a lot of people.

    Is the fifth definition correct?
