WALANG katiyakan kung kelan magaganap ang coronation night ng 57th Binibining Pilipinas.
Dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic, na-postpone ang dapat na coronation night ng Binibining Pilipinas noong April 26.
Nilipat nila ito for May 31, pero mukhang hindi pa ito matutuloy dahil nasa ilalim pa rin ng modified ECQ ang Metro Manila.
Kaya napagdesisyunan ng Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) na i-“postpone indefinitely” ang kanilang pageant.
“Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI) supports the government’s quarantine restrictions and efforts to curb the further spread of COVID-19 which has now become a global pandemic.
“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.
“Our plans to re-schedule the pageant activities shall depend on guidelines and regulations that will be issued by the government in the coming months.
“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.
“Thank you and we sincerely pray for your safety and good health in these trying times.”
Wala na ang Miss Universe franchise sa Binibining Pilipinas at may sariling pageant na ito.
Ang mga titulong naiwan ay Miss International, Miss Grand International, Miss Intercontinental, Miss Supranational and Miss Globe.
Sa October 2020 naman magaganap ang finals ng Miss Universe Philippines.
