|Intro||Egyptian Prime Minister|
|Is|| Politician |
Hussein, Pasha Roshdy (1863–1928) (Arabic: حسين رشدي باشا) was an Egyptian political figure of Turkish origin who served as Prime Minister of Egypt between 1914 and 1919. Under pressure from British authorities, Roshdy issued a “Decision of the Council of Ministers” which essentially declared war against the Central Powers in the First World War. He was later forced to resign for failing to resolve a strike by government officials demanding mandatory recognition of the Egyptian delegation by the cabinet and the withdrawal of British sentries and guards.
