MANILA, Philippines - Transportation and Communications Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas on Wednesday breezed through a hearing of the Commission on Appointments (CA) and easily got its nod, with some lawmakers saying he can even be the country’s President.

“If Mar Roxas is qualified to run the country, then he is certainly more qualified to run a department,” Palawan Rep. Antonio Alvarez, chair of the CA’s transportation and communications committee, said before Roxas was confirmed by the bicameral body.

At the start of the CA’s hearing, Cebu Rep. Eduardo Gullas immediately recommended Roxas’ confirmation. No one objected.

The only question thrown at him during the hearing that lasted less than 15 minutes was from a friend, Sen. Panfilo Lacson, who asked in jest, “Totoo bang nagdadalang tao si Korina?”

Lacson was referring to Roxas’ wife, broadcaster Korina Sanchez. As laughter filled the hall, the senator said Roxas does not have to answer his question and then endorsed his confirmation.

Pressed by reporters for answers after the hearing, Roxas laughingly said, “We are trying very hard.”
