The Sipopo Conference Center became, once again, the scenario for the election of Miss Equatorial Guinea 2013, who will also be the Equatoguinean representative in Miss World. This year, after an emotional gala which literally brought the audience to their feet on many occasions, Restituta Mfumu, the representative of Micomiseng was elected; a disputed decision, for the opinions expressed by the public in the hall at the time of the decision. However, Restituta and the other participants amazed all those present with the metamorphosis the girls underwent during these days of preparation and their excellent performance during the gala. We must not forget that all of them went to the contest without knowing much about catwalks, modeling, and much less about facing the public in a great competition such as that of yesterday, and they all passed the test with a high grade.

The organization of the evening, despite a certain delay in its start, was perfect. The director of the Mogue Agency, Consuelo Obiang, organized the event, and was the main person responsible for the entire organization, recalled that the slogan of this competition was "No to early pregnancy, no to abandonment of studies, no to juvenile alcoholism" and expressed the importance that the Equatoguinean girls experienced the opportunity of working for their future from all the areas possible, and of avoiding these realities that many times complicate their lives. Also, Consuelo Obiang thanked the sponsors that have helped to organize the contest, and especially the Government of Equatorial Guinea, Ceiba Intercontinental, EG LNG, ExxonMobil and GEPetrol, the principal financiers of the contest. The jury was formed by Carmelo Martin Modu, Secretary of State for Technology; Mayte Modu, stylist, former model and businesswoman; Maria Jose Perez Ulla, former Miss España, Rufino Ndog Esono, Director-General of Culture, and the businesswoman Milagrosa Mbana.

The audience at the Conference Center could also enjoy the presence of many "beautiful people" in the scenario, such as that of the conductors of the gala: no less than Desirée Ndjambo, presenter of Television Española, and Isaac Vidjraku, the former Mister España, who won over those present with their friendliness and for the good chemistry between them. Furthermore, the performances were also brilliant, such as that of the Equatoguinean Betty Akna, who accompanied by her dancers interpreted songs from her latest record Lembo la Mboka Ame.

The girls paraded in swimsuits, street clothes and party dresses, dazzling all those present, who showed their joy or their disappointment in each of the eliminations. Finally, the five finalists chosen were Mesticia, from Mongomeyen; Olga from Corisco; Lisa from Bata; Juana from Nsork Nsomo and Restituta from Micomiseng, who was the one who won the throne as the new queen of Equatoguinean beauty and for which a new and different life has just begun, literally, in the first place, going to Indonesia to participate in the next Miss World competition.
