Ahmed Maher Pasha (1888 – 24 February 1945) (Arabic: أحمد ماهر باشا) was the Prime Minister of Egypt from 10 October 1944 to 24 February 1945. He was a member of the Saadist Institutional Party and was appointed Prime Minister following the removal of Mustafa an-Nahhas Pasha by King Farouk.
After assuming power he called for new elections and opposed the candidacies of members of the Muslim brotherhood, against whom he had declared a fatwa. Maher then declared war against the Axis Powers in World War II, primarily to gain a diplomatic advantage at the end of the war (which was seen as imminent). Immediately after his announcement, Maher was assassinated at parliament by 28-year-old Mahmoud Elessawy. Although it was assumed that Essawy was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, he later confessed that he was actually a member of the Wafd Party.
Ahmed Maher Pasha was the grandfather of Ahmed Maher, Egypt's Foreign Minister from 2001 to 2004, as well as Ambassador Aly Maher.
