PNG pushing for name change to regional beauty contest

The delegation from Papua New Guinea, in Samoa, for the Miss South Pacific Pageant has another mission beside vying for the crown.

The Papua New Guineans hope to convince the organisers to change the name to the Miss Pacific Pageant.

The chair of the PNG pageant, Misimoa Lam, has told Talamua Online that PNG is not in the southern part of the Pacific and a name change would give them a sense of belonging.
