Twenty official candidates for this year’s Mutya ng Palawan were presented to the Palawan media Wednesday.
Leonila Baga, Mutya ng Palawan 2018 Committee Chairman told Palawan News this year’s search was different from the previous pageants since the screening had been done by each participating municipality.
“Ngayon, wala na tayong screening kasi sa LGU na sila dumaan. Kaya no endorsement, no candidates,” Baga said.
Meanwhile, the municipalities of Balabac, Dumaran, Linapacan and Magsaysay still have no candidates.
The main competition categories include swimsuit, festival costume and long gown competion slated on June 19 at NCCC Mall.
The contestants will also hold a mall tour on June 17.
The pre-judging will be held on June 22 at the Holiday Suites and coronation night is scheduled on June 22 at the Mendoza Park.
