MANILA, Philippines — Senator Manuel Roxas II is set to ask for the hand of his fiancée, broadcaster Korina Sanchez, on Saturday.

Roxas told reporters Tuesday that he will talk with Sanchez’ siblings and relatives over the weekend to assure them that he will love her “kahapon, ngayon at hanggang bukas (yesterday, today and tomorrow)."

“Ipagdasal ninyo na hindi ako mabulol at masabi ko yung tama sa pamilya ni Korina (Please pray that I won’t get tongue -tied and I will be able to say the correct words to Sanchez’ family)," Roxas told reporters.

Asked if he believed that his relationship with Sanchez helped in his good showing in the surveys, he said their relationship had been a public knowledge for a long time .

“Sino ba naman ang tututol na hindi nakadagdag sa akin ang pagmamahal ni Korina sa atin pero sa palagay ko hindi naman ganun kababaw ang mga kababayan natin. Siguro nakita nila ang laman ng aking puso at sinuklian nila ito ng dagdag na tiwala para sa atin (Who will disagree that Korina’s love indeed helped in my popularity but I believe the public is deeper than that. Maybe they saw the sincerity of my heart and returned it with their trust)," Roxas said.

The senator posted a five-percentage-point improvement in the recent Pulse Asia survey with 13 percent of the respondents rooting for him compared to only eight percent in February.

The survey was conducted from May 4 to 17 or over a week after Roxas and Sanchez announced on television their plan to get married.
