Transparency Solomon Islands is calling on the government to exclude itself from election or appointment processes in the country's proposed Independent Commission Against Corruption.
The call comes after a recent workshop held in Honiara behind closed doors looked at the results of the country's UNCAC peer review.
Transparency Solomon Islands Phillip Manakako says the workshop was strictly for government officials and the existing accountability institutions and NGOs and Civil Society organisations were not invited.
"We are hoping that something good is coming out from that and then if the government is serious about it like the way they say it in the media. That they will soon establish that anti-corruption body sometimes later this year and the effectiveness next year, that is a good step."
Mr Manakako says Transparency Solomon Islands wants the ICAC to be set up through an act of parliament and for its members to be appointed by a committee outside parliament and government.
