SAO PAULO Feb 6 (Reuters) - Brazil's Communications Minister Ricardo Berzoini said on Friday he did not believe Aldemir Bendine would be chief executive of state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA on a temporary basis.

Government sources on Friday said Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff had tapped Bendine, the CEO of state-run Banco do Brasil SA, to steer the oil company through a massive corruption scandal. Some analysts have speculated he would hold the job for only a short time until a more market-friendly figure can be found. (Reporting by Cesar Bianconi; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
