Here’s the reason why Enrile will skip the inauguration of BBM
JUAN PONCE ENRILE – The former senator will skip the inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. this coming June 30.
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.
Apparently, Enrile cannot attend the inauguration of the 17th President of the Republic of the Philippines.
This, after he contracted COVID-19.
The 98-year-old former senator is now confined at the Makati Medical Center.
According to him, he has already advised the camp of Marcos Jr. that he might not come to the oath-taking which is slated on Thursday, June 30 at the National Museum in Manila.

The camp of Bongbong Marcos has yet to issue any statement regarding Enrile.
