Kerensky was the temporary democratic leader between Czar Nicholas II and the Bolsheviks. The interesting thing about the election of 1917 was the V.I. Lenin and the Bolshevics actually lost by a fairly large margin to the Social Democrats (Socialists), and their leader Viktor Chernov. However, the Bolshevics refused to deal with the defeat, and seized power regardless in early 1918, and banned all other parties.
