Yes, in that case it was a filmed teleplay. PATTERNS (1956) is another one.

PUTNEY SWOPE (1969) After it's chairman dies, Putney Swope, the only black executive on an advertising company's board becomes the chairman after a secret ballot. (I haven't seen this film since I first saw it in the Baronet theater on Third Avenue in Manhattan)

How about a few movies where the leader is new insofar as a lookalike is now in charge (at least temporarily)?

The Prisoner of Zenda (1937/1952)
The Man in the Iron Mask (1939/1998)
The Great Dictator (1940)
Moon over Parador (1988)
Dave (1993)
