Mostafa Fahmy Pasha (11 June 1840 – 13 September 1914) was an Egyptian politician who served in several different cabinet positions and as prime minister for two times.
Early life and education
After graduation, Fahmy joined the Egyptian army and later, he became a Lieutenant general. He retired from the army and began to serve as a governor in different provinces, including Minuffiyya, Cairo and lastly, Port Said. After serving in other low-profile public positions, he was appointed minister of public works in 1879. Then Fahmy served at different cabinet positions: minister of foreign affairs, minister of justice, minister of finance, minister of interior (three times) and minister of war and marine (two times).
Fahmy was appointed prime minister on 12 May 1891, replacing Riaz Pasha. Fahmy remained in office for nearly two years and was sacked by Abbas II on 15 January 1893. The King dismissed him due to his over reliance on the British agency. Hussein Fahri Pasha replaced Fahmy Pasha as prime minister. Fahmy's second appointment as prime minister was on 12 November 1895, replacing Nubar Pasha in the post. Fahmy Pasha's second term lasted until 12 November 1908, and Boutros Ghali replaced him as prime minister.
