MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines has just earned another entry in the Guinness Book of World Records with the appointment of Juan Ponce Enrile as Bongbong Marcos’ Presidential Legal Adviser.
Enrile, as then Defense Secretary, helped oust Bongbong’s father, Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. during the People’s Power Revolution.
But that’s not what the world record is all about.
Enrile, 98, would be the world’s oldest living politician. Two years into the Marcos administration, Enrile would be a Centenarian, a record that would be very hard to beat.
This record, of course, is subject to fact checking by Rappler and Vera Files.
