Reshet Bet: Despite law, minorities continue to be underrepresented in government offices

Ethiopian Israelis and Druse are underrepresented in government offices despite the law that demands adequate representation for minorities, according to a Reshet Bet report published on Monday.

Both the National Council for the Prevention of Road Accidents and the Israel Securities Authority did not employee any Ethiopian Israelis or Druse last year, the report revealed.

Ethiopian Israelis make up some 1.5 percent of the general population.
