However, the poor turnout at the event in Hadera indicated that some in the Ethiopian community are not fully aware of their voting power and ability to exact change. "If you won’t have power, you will be worthless – in Hadera and in the rest of the country," one of the speakers at the event told those on hand.


Israel Pinhasi, who also attended the event, told Ynet the Ethiopian Israelis "still feel like newcomers…If they use their power, better people may enter the Knesset."
