THE government will not float the prices of chicken nor increase the electricity and water tariffs in the peninsula, said Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

His announcement marks a U-turn just days after Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Alexander Nanta Linggi said chicken prices will be floated from July 1, following the end of chicken subsidies.
