Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 25) - The search for the most beautiful ladies in the country has been postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

The Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. announced that the 2020 pageant will be re-scheduled depending on the guidelines and regulations to be issued by the government.

“BPCI recognizes the pressing and urgent need to protect the health and safety of the candidates, their families and friends, all the passionate pageant supporters, and the general public. Mindful of the potential and serious risks, BPCI has decided to postpone the Binibining Pilipinas 2020 Pageant indefinitely,” the organization said in its statement.

The pageant was originally scheduled last April 26, but it was moved to May 31 following the declaration of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon. However, there is no decision yet from the government if there will be an extension of modified ECQ or transition to a general community quarantine in Metro Manila after the end of May.

“Rest assured that BPCI still intends to hold the Pageant with its partners and sponsors as soon as the situation permits, when the threat of transmission and infection is at its minimum,” BPCI added.

Bb. Pilipinas is the national search for the country’s representatives to the Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Intercontinental, Miss Globe, and Miss Grand International.

Meanwhile, another local pageant – Miss Universe Philippines -- was moved to October due to the current crisis.
