Leaders of Solomon Islands students at USP have called off the planned peaceful demonstration at the Solomon Islands High Commission in Suva at an urgent meeting held Monday afternoon.

A statement from Suva says the decision was based on the positive response conveyed to the students' executive recently by the Ministry of Education Permanent Secretary to address their allowance submission.

In an e-mail distributed to the students, the SISA secretary appealed to students to respect the decisions of the Mother Ministry and student leaders, and refrain from unlawful actions that may cause disrepute to their studies or result in unacceptable consequences.

In another development, Solomon Islands students at the USP Laucala campus will elect a new SISA Executive this week as the term of the current Executive comes to an end.
