Hong Kong actor and singer Jordan Chan faces a possible six months jail for posting an image of his ballot paper for the island state’s district council elections on social media.

Hong Kong daily Ming Pao reported that the pro-China artiste had posted the picture on his Weibo account where he hashtagged the captions “Be an upright Hong Kong citizen” and “Keep it up Hong Kong.”

The picture was, however, removed 30 minutes later and was replaced with another picture with a new hashtag “I have done my duty as a Hong Kong citizen.”

Screenshots of his now-deleted Weibo posting, have been circulating on other social media platforms with many criticising Chan and calling for action to be taken against him.

Under the Electoral Affairs Commission (Electoral Procedure) (District Council) Regulation, those who take film, photo, audio or video on election day can be fined and jailed six months.
