CAIRO - Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi will keep his post as defense minister in Egypt's first Muslim Brotherhood-led administration, Prime Minister-designate Hisham Kandil said on Thursday.

Tantawi served as President Hosni Mubarak's defense minister for two decades until the military assumed power from the former leader in February, 2011, ending a mass uprising against his rule.
