Darth Vader is getting into politics. He has set his sights on Ukrainian politics. He has declared himself as a candidate in the Ukrainian presidential election. Will the dark side give him an edge over his opponents?

He told RT News, "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," Vader said.

Vader, currently the chairman of the Internet Party, has also made the required monetary deposit of 2.5 million Ukrainian hryvnia ($225,225) required for candidacy.
