In the midst of an economic crisis, Hezbollah and Amal have called off the boycott of Lebanon's cabinet

The tens of thousands of Lebanese organizations Hezbollah and Amal have announced on Saturday that they will end a cabinet session boycott, allowing ministers to convene following a three-month gap that has seen the economy and currency falling further.

The group, which backs several ministers in a government composed of members from across the political spectrum, stated that the decision was driven by a desire to approve the budget for 2022 and to discuss a political recovery.

In a dispute about the preparation of an investigation into the massive Beirut port explosion in 2020, the groups had refused to assist cabinet meetings.
