public on Monday that consumer prices are stable.

Chu’s comments came as toilet paper prices were set to increase by between 10% and 30%. According to opposition KMT lawmaker Lai Shyh-bao, chicken prices have already increased by 20%.

When Lai asked why the Consumer Price Index (CPI) does not reflect rising prices, Chu responded by saying it’s because there has been a decrease in prices for other products.
