He ruled from 23 March 1821 to 30 April 1821 as Grand Vizier of sultan Mahmud II[1] He came to Constantinople on 21 April 1821 and was actually only nine days in power.[1]

He was the last Grand Vizier, who was executed upon a clear order by the sultan (Mahmud II) the Greek War of Independence.

According to Ottoman biography textbook called Sicill-i Osmani, on 12 April 1821[citation needed] he was diminished by Sultan Mahmut and was sent to exile in Rhodes where he died later. Controversially according Ottoman annals by royal historian Vak'a-nüvis Ahmet Cevdet Efendi (textbook called Tarih-i Cevdet), he was sent in exile to Cyprus and after his departure royal executors were send to the island[citation needed]. He was interred at Karacaahmet Cemetery in the Üsküdar district of Istanbul.
