As a rules editor, I have a love/hate relationship with rules but admit that as a gamer I hardly ever read examples of play.
Thanks again for the answer. I will add that we decided, based on our general feel for the game, to play it so that the new Leader is Neutral.

Well, this is vexing! The newly-promoted Leader is Neutral, which should have been in paragraph (f) of 11.2 below the Design Note. Shucks and other comments...
Unfortunately, the only place this is stated explicitly is in the Extended Example of Play 14.6.2.
