Dr. Chandran Somasundram – Assoc. Professor, Universiti Malaya

WUPID at its inception brought together some of the best debaters in the world to showcase debating at its best. This was a good move to enable Malaysian teams, preparing for Worlds, to have sparring sessions under a very competitive environment. It’s not often that you get the chance to debate against the worlds bests. Some good debaters in the region also came to WUPID to finalise their preparation for Worlds thus making WUPID and important and prestigious pre-Worlds tournament.
