Not invariably, but I am sure it is a huge temptation. I am sure there are principled people who can resist the corruptive parts of absolute power.

Power doesn't corrupt, it just lets you do whatever you want. For most people, that means abusing the power, but not if you're genuinely nice and want to help people.

Depends on the person, But if the person is already currupt b4 they get the power then there is nothing that can be done about it.
Some people can handle the power and should be given it.

Donot think too lightly about temptation...
