Responding Sunday to the government's approval of a plan supposedly designed to improve conditions for the Ethiopian community, Kadima MK Shlomo Mollo said in a statement that the government's decision was nothing new and did nothing to substantively improve the lives of Ethiopians.

His statement added that the decision is just a recycling of earlier solutions which failed to seriously address the discrimination that Ethiopians face in a range of areas of life.

"This decision is just another one which will gather dust on the prime minister's shelf," said Mollo, noting that, "its only purpose is public relations."

Mollo concluded that the new plan presented no real solutions to the problems voiced in large rallies a few months ago by the Ethiopian community and supporters across the country.
