Miss Panama Organization says "don't have the necessary time to obtain the approval of franchise rights at the right time"

The Miss Universe Panama Franchisee says "We conclude this chapter with a heart full of gratitude"

Mon, Dec 4, 2023: The Organización Miss Panamá, Certamen Nacional de la Belleza has today released an official statement revealing that Miss Universe Panama Organization is giving away Miss Universe Franchisee.

Here is the full release:

The universe demands balance in all its manifestations. This is why we consider it appropriate to express our position regarding the events of the last two years, during which we have devoted our utmost efforts to a project that was of great importance to us. 

First of all, we would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to give a voice to the Panamanian woman, taking her to a platform where she could be listened to in an equal way, competing with other wonderful women that they shared the same purpose. 
Unfortunately, we do not have the necessary time to obtain the approval of franchise rights at the right time, which prevented us from to attract the necessary sponsors to cover the high costs associated with the production and preparation of our representatives.

As a committed and solid company, the Miss Universe Panama Organization and Miss Panama, National Beauty Pageant, cannot commit to situations that contradict our principles. We seek to compete on an equal basis of conditions with other countries and we demand that the information be transparent for everyone.

We have faced situations where the public had knowledge of guidelines and changes before us, the franchises. We understand the media nature of choosing a winner from more than 80 women, but this the situation is complicated when privileges are granted to managers and teams of I work during the concentration, without our knowledge as an organization.

The Miss Panama Organization has stood out for including all the women who they want to be heard, able to change their lives and those of others. We are proud to have achieved significant changes in each of the participants who have passed through our organization.

We leave with our heads held high and our duty fulfilled, honouring our honesty and by engaging with each of our sponsors, vendors and strategic allies who have supported us since we assumed the representation from Miss Universe. As for our representative, Natasha Vargas, who performed a 
exceptional raising the standard of the Panamanian representatives, he we express our sincere gratitude for your dedication and commitment during both contests.

We thank the followers of the contests in our country for lending their attention, participate with comments and activity on social networks, elements that they are an integral part of the world of beauty pageants. It is for all these reasons that we make public our resignation from the Miss Universe organization as of the date.

We conclude this chapter with a heart full of gratitude and the satisfaction of having fulfilled our duty. Every effort invested, every challenge overcome and every positive change achieved in the lives of the participants we full of pride and joy. 

We deeply appreciate the support provided by all those who believed in our project, from the sponsors to the devoted followers of the beauty contests in our country. It has been an unforgettable and enriching trip. Our commitment to integrity, fairness and transparency will continue guiding our steps in future projects. With our heads held high, we close this chapter, thanking every person who was part of this journey.

We look to the future with optimism, aware that we have left a positive impact on the trajectory of those who participated in our organization. May this decision mark the beginning of new horizons and opportunities full of successes and enriching experiences. 

Thank you all for being a part of this story that, with love and dedication, we write together.
