ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Emir Sirajul Haq said on Wednesday his party would consider other options, including protest, if the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would not give the JI its right.

Highlighting the issue of Karachi’s mayor, Mr Haq said, "Our mandate should be recognised, and the Karachi mayor should be from the JI".
