(PCM) In a bit of odd news out of the Ukraine, it seems that if Star Wars characters are now running for a place in the Ukrainian parliament. Somehow Yoda, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader have officially registered as candidates under the “Internet Party”.
The upcoming elections for parliament are set to take place in the city of Odessa on October 26. Odessa happens to be the third largest city in the Ukraine. Rest assured that the candidates are actual people as the individuals in the running have legally changed their names to Darth V. Vader, Stepan Chubakka (Chewbacca) and Master V. Yoda.
Now that’s what we can dedication!!
The “Internet Party” candidates even went as far as to use iconic Star Wars imagery with a slight Ukrainian twist in both their campaign posters and videos. Even though the party’s attempt at having a member actually get elected to parliament, the party’s campaign is certainly creating a lot of buzz and a few laughs throughout the Ukraine.
