The motion of no confidence against Malaita Premier Daniel Suidani has been withdrawn.
Thousands of MARA supporters marched peacefully through Auki town, calling on the movers to withdraw their planned motion of no confidence against Premier Suidani.
A huge crowd gathered outside of the Assembly hall, women were seen sitting outside the entrance of the Assembly hall, an act of defiance but also an act of cultural significance.
"This is our house, we put then into the house, so we are here to stop them from doing what we do not want," a protestor said.
"This is a government of the people, so if the central government cannot listen than we have to stand up and talk," another protestor said.
"We pray for Malaita and we pray for our future, this is our prayer."
Premier Suidani told the crowd that because of the current situation, the Opposition group has agreed to withdraw the planned motion.
"There is no such thing as an Opposition group, the MARA government is the executive and non-executive," Premier Suidani said.
The popularity of the MARA government is perhaps plain to see, the people have spoken, and their voice was loud and clear - they want Suidani to remain as Premier of Malaita.
