Democratic socialism is a branch of socialism which believes in democracy as a means and an end. It is not the same as Marxism-Leninism, which establishes a single party dictatorship. Examples of democratic socialists include Salvador Allende, the democratically elected President of Chile who was overthrown by a U.S.-backed coup de etat, Evo Morales, the current president of Bolivia, and the United Kingdom Parliament's Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn.
