KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 24- Politicians in Malaysia should emulate former Thailand prime minister Chuan Leekpai who is still active in serving the parliament even without holding any important post in the government, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia said.

“This scenario is not common in Malaysia. Unlike Chuan, once the Malaysian politicians found themselves without any post in the government, they will also lose all interests to serve or debate for the government,” said Pandikar Amin who was also impressed with Narong’s ability to speak fluently in Malay language.
