Revolutionary movements and youth groups which supported the July 3 coup against President Mohamed Morsi walked out of a Wednesday meeting with Suez Governor Arabi al-Sorey because the latter, they said, had "belittled" them.

Ali Amin, spokesman for the National Salvation Front, which had led calls for Morsi's ouster, said the governor had intentionally "belittled" the importance of local political and revolutionary groups.

"He dealt with us poorly, forcing us to walk out of the meeting," Amin told Anadolu Agency on Wednesday.

"We will not allow a new dictator in the province," Amin added, vowing to boycott the canal city's recently-appointed governor.

Islam Mosaddaq, member of a Suez-based revolutionary group, was also critical of al-Sorey.

"We walked out of the meeting because the governor believes that political parties' only role is to report power outages and sewage problems," Mosaddaq told AA.

The governor, for his part, who has a military background, denied the accusations.

"I didn't insult anyone," al-Sorey told AA. "I respect all political groups in the province."
