The consumer price index (CPI) climbed 13.5% year-on-year in April, slower than the 15.3% gain in March.
This was the weakest rate of inflation since February 2022, when prices had risen 12%.
Prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages increased the most by 23.4%, followed by a 16.6% rise in housing costs. Prices for miscellaneous goods and services grew 16.0%, while transport charges went up only 0.5%.
