Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 25) -- After its coronation night was postponed anew, the Miss World Philippines organization named Dindi Pajares, one of this year’s candidates, to represent the country in the Miss Supranational pageant in Poland on Aug. 21.

National director Arnold Vegafria said Pajares was chosen by her fellow candidates in a small ceremony on Saturday.

Pajares is expected to leave the country on Aug. 3.

Other candidates considered for the title were Ruffa Nava, Kathleen Paton, and Megan Campbell.

Miss World Philippines 2021 was originally scheduled on July 11 but was moved to July 25. It was postponed again to Aug. 8 after the national government placed Metro Manila under general enhanced community quarantine with heightened restrictions.

The country had its first and only Miss Supranational winner through Mutya Datul in 2013, under the management of Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. The MWP organization acquired the local franchise of the pageant last year.
