Enrile has been named as the chief presidential legal counsel of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

At 98, he’s the oldest Cabinet member of the newly elected president of the Republic of the Philippines.

Enrile has been in the government service for 50 years. He became an assemblyman, congressman, senator, and senate president.

He is said to be the protege of BBM’s father late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. It was in 1966 when he served as acting secretary of finance, secretary of the Justice Department from December 17, 1968, to February 7, 1970, and minister of defense from January 1972 to February 1986.

He was also a key figure in the fall of Marcos’s regime during the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution.

Fast forward to 2022, he became a vocal supporter of BBM and eventually part of the cabinet of the incoming administration.

Among those who expressed amazement at Enrile’s appointment is no less than former Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson.

He believes that Juan Ponce Enrile could be in the Guinness World Records forever for being the oldest government official when he steps down at age 104 in 2028.

Here’s the Twitter post of Lacson:

His statement earned mixed reactions on Twitter.

There were netizens who compared Enrile to Cardo Dalisay, the “immortal” character of Coco Martin on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
