PETALING JAYA: The results of studies conducted by Universiti Malaya Centre for Democracy and Elections (UMcedel) should be accepted wholly as an academic study by parties related to it, said MCA vice-president Datuk Dr Hou Kok Chung.
He said this would allow the results to be debated academically.
Dr Hou was commenting on the controversy surrounding the resignation of Prof Datuk Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman from his position as UMcedel director.
“What we need to avoid are the baseless allegations against Dr Mohammad and studies by UMcedel,” he said in a statement yesterday.
“We need to be mature and agree to disagree when it comes to UMcedel studies conducted by him (Dr Mohammad Redzuan).
“Personally, I find a lot of UMcedel studies are bold and transparent and can help those who are ready to accept it.”
Dr Hou, who knows Dr Moham-mad personally, said Dr Mohammad was clear about his tasks at Univer-siti Malaya and UMcedel.
“I followed and went through the studies on local politics conducted by him. In my opinion, the UMcedel study gives a refreshing point of view although it appears as if it sided with one party,” he said.
