Philippine president-elect FerdinandThe Philippines Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a final bid to disqualify President-elect Ferdinand Marcos from last month's election, local media reported, clearing the way for his inauguration later this week. Marcos, 64, won the May 9 election in a landslide and will be sworn in on Thursday for a six-year term. The Supreme Court justices unanimously dismissed the consolidated cases, media reported. The court did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation and details of its decision had yet to be published. The Marcos camp had long dismissed the petitions as efforts by his opponents to hobble his campaign.
