MANILA, Philippines—Take it from Marcos’ martial law administrator himself.
Filipinos won’t accept a junta even if the May elections fail and produce no successor to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, according to Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.
Enrile acknowledged that a military takeover was possible in a tense situation, such as a failure of elections.
