CAIRO: Egyptian Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb is expected to retain his position in the new government, two government sources said on Monday, a day after Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was sworn in as president.

The two men are due to hold talks on a new cabinet, which officials and the media say is expected to retain ministers in leading positions such as the finance portfolio. It is not clear when a new administration will be named.
