Broadcaster Korina Sanchez said her husband, Interior Secretary Mar Roxas was the most qualified candidate for the presidency in 2016.

She was in Lapu-Lapu City on Friday to distribute rubber slippers to indigent children, which is her special “tsinelas” charity, and bracelets to celebrate her fifth wedding anniversary with Roxas, and her fourth anniversary as TV Host of the show “Rated K.”

Sanchez said her husband would announce his political plans in July.

“I don’t think that there will be a Poe-Roxas tandem in the presidential elections,” she added.

“It has not been discussed during their meetings,” said Sanchez, who was referring to the possibility of having Senator Grace Poe as her husband’s running mate in the 2016 elections.

Poe earlier declined an offer by Vice President Jejomar Binay to be her running mate. Poe said in an earlier report that she was more comfortable running with her friend Sen. Chiz Escudero.

Assisted by Efrain Pelaez, the Liberal Party chairman Lapu-Lapu City chapter, Sanchez last Friday distributed slippers to children, packs of rice and anniversary bracelets to pre selected beneficiaries at the Marina Mall in  Lapu-Lapu City.

Sanchez also pitched for her husband saying Secretary Roxas had  experience, honesty, integrity, and intelligence.

She said Roxas helped to attract more call centers in the Visayas, brought in more medicine, built more schools, acquired fire trucks for local government units, installed CCTV cameras, and brought more patrol jeeps and boats in the Visayas than any other offical.

“No one has been able to do that before,” she said.

She said she was on leave  from ABS-CBS because of her schooling and her going around the country could continue until the campaign period.
