He was chosen by Ferdinand Marcos as his vice-presidential running mate for the February 7, 1986 snap elections. They were against the united opposition of Corazon Aquino and Salvador Laurel. Historians believe that Marcos really won by a very thin margin, and so votes were padded to make it look like Marcos won by a landslide. According to the National Movement for Free Elections (NAMFREL) final tally, Corazon Aquino and Salvador Laurel were consistently in the lead. Also, according to the COMELEC tally, Tolentino won over Laurel with a margin of around one million votes. However, according to the NAMFREL tally, Laurel actually had a lead of over 800,000 votes. This allegedly fraudulent outcome would eventually lead to the EDSA Revolution which ousted President Ferdinand Marcos and installed Corazon Aquino as president. Ferdinand Edralín Marcos (September 11, 1917 – September 28, 1989) was the tenth president of the Philippines, serving from 1965 to 1986. ...

Tolentino then would launch a coup on July 6, 1986 declaring that since Marcos was in exile, he was constitutionally the acting President of the Philippines. Marcos allies and about 100 soldiers marched to the luxurious Manila Hotel, barricading it with trucks, and installing a rebel seat of government there. He was expecting massive support, but only several thousands of Marcos loyalists supported the attempted power grab. On July 8, he agreed to disperse his thousands of civilian supporters and about a hundred military backers, ending the failed coup attempt.
