KIEV, October 26. /TASS/. Darth Vader, a candidate for a seat in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada /parliament/ with the Internet Party, failed to cast his vote at the early parliamentary polls having refused to take off his mask, the Ukrainian media report on Sunday.

Members of the election commission at a polling station where he was to cast his ballot refused to give him his ballot paper, saying he was supposed to present a passport and show his face. “I thought it might be that way. I am very disappointed. My rights have been violated again,” Darth Vader told journalists.

People who were present at the polling station when a man in a headpiece, black cloak and a mask appeared reacted in different ways - some were taking pictures, others were grumbling.
