Solomon Islands' acting prime minister Manasseh Maelanga has promised protesters government would bring back its anti-corruption bill when parliament resumes next month.
More than 4000 people across the country signed a petition which was delivered to the acting prime minister in Honiara after a public protest march from the SMI area near Townground to the office of the prime minister.
The prime minister Manasseh Sogavare has been widely criticised for withdrawing the bill from parliament in August despite his reassurances it was only so the proposed legislation could be reviewed and made stronger.
The opposition group however accuses Mr Sogavare of not having the support of his own MPs to pass the bill which would have provided the framework for the establishment of an independent commission against corruption.
The march was organised by the civil society's anti-corruption committee.
Committee member, Lawrence Makili, told Koroi Hawkins there was a good turnout to support the delivery of the petition.
