A fresh face on the political scene in Ukraine is hoping the country will be open to embracing the power of the dark side.

Darth Vader of Star Wars fame has announced he is running for the presidency of Ukraine as a candidate for the Ukrainian Internet Party.

“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 in a statement released by the UIP.

The party, founded by Dmitry Golubov, is looking to eliminate the use of paper and create a “government by Internet.” The party was officially registered in 2010.

“After winning intra-party primaries by a landslide, comrade Vader will be our party’s candidate,” Golubov said.

According to the UIP, Vader won three percent of the votes in 2012 parliamentary elections.

The Voice of Russia said Vader is a candidate “whose force should definitely not be underestimated.”

Ukraine’s presidential election will be held on May 25.
