A new candidate has entered the race to be the Ukraine’s next president. Get this. It’s Darth Vader. Representing the Ukrainian Internet Party, Vader plans on restoring the country to its former glory.
According to Internet Party representatives, Vader won the primary elections and officially proposed his presidential candidacy on Saturday, March 29.
“I am prepared to take responsibility for the fate of this country, if fellow citizens do me this high honor. I alone can make an empire out of a republic, to restore former glory, to return lost territories and pride for this country,” stated former Jedi Anakin Skywalker.
This isn’t the first time Vader participated in Ukrainian political actions. Back in November of 2013, Vader was carried in a sedan chair by Stormtroopers and declared himself mayor by an order from Emperor Palpatine. He also ran for Parliament back in 2012 and gained 3 percent of votes. Unfortunately, these votes were considered void because supporters had to write in Vader’s name to the ballot.
People interested in running for president of the Ukraine must register by April 4 and pay $236,000 to the electoral commission. Vader plans to do so and the Internet Party says it has funds available.
