MADRID Jan 24 (Reuters) - Bankinter's bad loans ratio may hit 5 percent this year given Spain's weak economy and high unemployment, the bank's chief executive officer said on Thursday.

Earlier, Bankinter said its bad loans ratio reached 4.28 percent at the end of 2012, up from 4.02 percent at end-September.
