Strict regulations on the movement of the Miss Pacific Islands is high on the agenda for the beauty organisation’s board meeting next month.
Director of this year’s Miss Solomon, Joyce Konifilia said the board has decided to restrict the movement of the Miss Pacific Islands after the reigning Miss Pacific Islands, Miss Samoa Latafale Auva’a, opted to attend the Miss World Pageant in China instead of the Miss Pacific Islands.
Ms Konifilia said Auva’a’s decision could set a precedence for other Miss Pacific Islands beauty Queens in the future so the board will impose regulations restricting her obligations first, to the Miss Pacific Islands.
The Miss World is scheduled to happen the same time as the Miss Pacific Islands Crowning in December.
Miss Auva’a’s decision has caused the Samoan Prime Minister to lash out that she has to set her priorities right.
Meanwhile, last year’s first runner-up, Miss Cook Islands, will crown the new Miss Pacific Islands 2015.
The Miss Pacific Islands will take place from 10-13 next month.
