MANILA, Philippines - The Aquino administration is not doing enough to punish the previous administration for being corrupt, according to the leader of the Senate's minority group.

"I think the desire is there but I don't know why the action is not," Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano told reporters.
While the senator commended the administration for being corruption-free during its first year in office, he said it failed to deliver concrete results in pursuing cases against its predecessor.

Cayetano also said President Aquino's government must not only be free from corruption but should be efficient and productive.

"'Yong presidente mismo tingin ko efficient, but his administration is not meeting the expectations of people in terms of productivity and efficiency," he said.

He added that the administration fell short in articulating its plans for the country more clearly.

Cayetano hopes the President would be able to a set a clearer road map for the country during his second State of the Natiom Address in the last week of July, the same time both houses of Congress resume session.
