MANILA, Philippines – Hindi makadadalo si incoming presidential legal counsel Juan Ponce Enrile sainagurasyon ni President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. matapos na magpositibo siya sa COVID-19.

Sa isang post sa Facebook, sinabi ni Enrile na ipinaalam na niya sa kampo ni Marcos na hindi siya dadalo sa oath-taking na nakatakda sa Huwebes, Hunyo 30 sa National Museum sa Maynila.

Kasalukuyang ginagamot sa Makati Medical Center ang 98-anyos.

“Since three days ago after I entered Makati Med. when I was diagnosed ‘positive’ for COVID virus,” ani Enrile.

“I never had any discomfort. No chills. No fever. No head ache. No malaise. My body temperature ranges from 36 [degrees] to 36.8. My body oxygen ranges from 96 to 99. All my physical vital signs and blood chemistry readings were normal. The only thing I had was a dry intermittent, sometimes intense, coughing. The CT-SCAN showed that I had mild COVID-19 pneumonia,” dagdag pa ni Enrile.

“I informed the Executive Secretary the Hon. Victor E. Rodriguez, about it and requested him to inform the President and ask him that I be excused from attending the oath taking ceremonies of the President and the Vice President on June 30th at noon because I will still be in the hospital by then to complete the Anti-viral regimen prescribed by my doctors,” aniya pa.

Sa kabilang banda, may mensahe naman si Enrile sa kanyang  “critics and enemies.”

“I am not going to die yet. Far from it. God gave me very good doctors. He wants me, I humbly think, to stay here for sometime more to engage you to help clear and clean up, if possible, your distorted narrative of our history for the benefit of the uninformed innocent people,” dagdag pa niya.

Ang beteranong mambabatas, na naging defense minister ng diktador na si Ferdinand Marcos Sr. noong mga taon ng Martial Law, ay isang masugid na tagasuporta ni Marcos Jr. at running mate na si Sara Duterte noong 2022 elections.

Inihayag niya ang kanyang pagreretiro mula sa politika noong 2016. Naglingkod siya sa gobyerno sa iba’t ibang tungkulin sa nakalipas na 50 taon, kabilang ang pansamantalang Kalihim ng Pananalapi mula 1966 hanggang 1968, Kalihim ng Hustisya mula 1968 hanggang 1970, at Ministro ng Depensa ng Pambansa mula 1972 hanggang 1986 .

Si Enrile ay naging ika-21 na Senate President noong ika-15 Kongreso mula 2008 hanggang 2013. RNT
