There is no "assasinate leader" button here, but perhaps its available only to non-democratic empires.But ...you can?
"Purging" the way its portrayed in the game, is not classic political repression. Regimes generally do not purge entire populations, but only active subversives. And suspected subversives. And potential subversives.
The way purge works right now in game, is you exterminate billions of pops to get rid of small organised groups, when merely killing off their leadership in series of "car accidents" would work better while not pissing of rest of your population as much. Think "purging" half of USA population vs killing off half of Congress to get rid of Democrat or Republican "Factions".
