CAIRO (Reuters) - Hany Kadri, who oversaw talks with the International Monetary Fund over a stalled rescue package last year, will be asked to serve as Egypt's interim finance minister, two sources in the government told Reuters on Saturday.

Interim Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi will also offer the foreign minister job to former ambassador to the United States Nabil Fahmy, the sources said. The candidates have not yet accepted the posts and the decisions are not yet final.

Former Interior Minister Ahmed Gamal el-Din would be offered the post of deputy prime minister responsible for security and former Planning Minister Ashraf al-Araby would be offered to return to the post he left in May.
