The comments by Khaled Dawoud, spokesman for the National Salvation Front, were made shortly after Morsi declared a state of emergency in three cities on the Suez Canal and also called for a meeting with senior politicians and groups.
"Of course we feel the president is missing the real problem on the ground which is his own polices," Dawoud told Reuters. He added: "His call to implement emergency law was an expected move given what is going on, namely thuggery and criminal actions."
