Miss Pinyasan candidate cleared of contest eligibility controversy

CAMARINES NORTE — A candidate for the Miss Pinyasan 2014 beauty pageant was almost robbed of the chance to vie for the title after figuring in a controversy involving her place of birth.

Fellow candidates and their parents reportedly wrote a protest letter alleging that candidate number 10 Princess Cecilio is not from the province of Camarines Norte.

The letter reached Francisco Elevado, who reported the matter on his Facebook account.

The same letter was brought to the attention of Municipal Tourism Officer Marco Paulo Delfinado, who conducted an investigation to verify the allegation.

A few days before the June 20 beauty pageant, however, Cecilio was able to present her birth certificate. Said certificate shows that she hails from the town of Sta. Elena.

The revelation brought relief to the Municipal Tourism Office, which is expecting throngs of tourists and locals to attend the pageant.

Also purportedly invited are several cast members of the ABS-CBN soap “The Legal Wife,” parts of which were shot in this province.

The pageant is part of Daet’s annual Pinyasan Festival.—With report from Francisco Elevado/DWFB—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
