Mohamed Mahmoud Pasha

Mohamed Mahmoud Pasha (1877 – 1941) (Arabic: محمد محمود باشا‎) was Prime Minister of Egypt twice.

Mohmoud first became Prime Minister from June 27, 1928 to October 4, 1929, running under the Liberal Constitutional Party. When he left office, Sir Percy Lyham Loraine led Egypt as Governor General for two months until a new Prime Minister could be elected. Later, after Egypt became an independent kingdom, Mohmoud again was elected, this time as a member of the Wafd Party. This term lasted from December 29, 1937 to August 18, 1939. Anton Haggar sculpted a statue for him in 1941.

The book The Solimanian Family depicts Mohamed Mahmoud Pacha's life in office, his relations to the British royal family, and his commitments to serve Egypt as best as he could.

A street was named after the prime minister, in the heart of Cairo, close to the famous Tahrir Square.

In 1919 he was exiled by the British in Malta on his way to the United States to further Egypt's independence.[1]

U.S. Congress debated raised by Mohamed Mahmoud's visit to the United States.[2]
