    MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday lamented that it's hard to run a democratic government, saying constitutional safeguards against human rights abuses are sometimes being exploited by unscrupulous individuals. “This is democracy and that is the reason we are pretty hard up. It is not easy to run a government that is democratic because of the so many rights of the citizens,” Duterte said in a speech in Davao City. “Iyang police power, power of eminent domain, and taxation --- those are the fundamentals. ‘Yun ang pinaka-core na power ng gobyerno. But there is a firewall also and that is the Bill of Rights - due process, right to be heard, lawyer during an investigation, and all of these things. And that is why we can hardly cope up.” What principle is espoused in this statement?

      Government of law and not of men
