JAKARTA, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Inflation in Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy, will be lower than 4.6 percent this year, Central Bank Director Perry Warjiyo said on Friday.

"2012 inflation can go below 4.6 percent if food prices remain stable," Warjiyo said, adding that next year's inflation level will be between 4.8 percent and to 5 percent if the government raises electricity prices.
