This eased further ahead of the presidential and parliamentary elections on May 14.
April consumer prices rose 2.39% from a month earlier, less than a predicted 2.60% in a Reuters poll.
The poll had forecast that consumer prices would be up 44% from a year earlier and was expected to end the year at 46.5%.
The country’s inflation rate was 69.97% in April 2022, according to TurkStat.
In its April meeting, the Turkish Central Bank kept the one-week repo rate, also known as the policy rate, unchanged at 8.5%.
The bank forecasts that inflation in the country will hit 22.3% at the end of the year.
