For several months, Darth Vader has been running for the President of Ukraine. That's his real, legal name: Darth Alekseyevich Vader.
He's the nominee of the Internet Party, which is also running candidates for Parliament. Those candidates represent a broad coalition of Imperial and Rebel Alliance leaders, including Yoda, Chewbacca, and Princess Amidala. Lord Vader's campaign has produced high quality campaign commercials, such as the one you see above.

Lord Vader has run an active campaign. He often rides a custom-built bus decorated in Imperial motifs through the major cities of Ukraine, delivering speeches.
Unfortunately for Vader, he was unable to vote. When he approached the polls, an election worker insisted that he remove his helmet to confirm his identity. Lord Vader refused and left (warning: auto-start video).
