    Hassan Ali Mansur

    حسنعلی منصور

    Iranian prime minister shot to death in 1965.Hasanali Mansour (April 13, 1923 – January 27, 1965) was an Iranian liberal and politician who was Prime Minister from 1963 to 1965. He served during the White Revolution of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and was assassinated by a member of the Fadayian Eslam.Hassanali was born in Tehran in 1923 to Prime Minister Ali Mansour (Mansour-al-Molk) and daughter of Zahir-ol-Molk Rais. Attended school in Tehran and graduated from Firooz-Bahram High School. During the World War II era, he entered Law School in University of Tehran and graduated with a degree in Political Science.In the post World War II era, young Mansour started his political career by entering the Foreign ministry and completed several internal and foreign assignments including tours of Germany and France. In the 1950s, this thirty year old was twice appointed as Chief of Prime Minister's Office, first for a brief period because of change in government, and second lasted for 2 years. In 1957, Prime Minister Manouchehr Eghbal appointed him as Chairman of the Economics Council and Vice Prime Minister. He also held positions as Minister of Labor, and Minister of Trade. Prime Minister Asadollah Alam appointed him as Chairman of "Bimeh Iran" insurance company.The Progressive Party or "Kanoon Motaraghiyoon" was founded by Mansour to conduct economic policy research as well as the launching pad for his future premiership. In 1962 Mansour ran for the 21st Majlis and was elected as the second representative from Tehran, after Abdollah Riazi, Speaker of the Majlis. A few dozen of his party members were also elected to Majlis, with the exception of Hoveida and Kashefian who were more interested in executive branch. Mansour then expanded his power base by forming a coalition and founded "IRAN NOVIN" party with a majority of 175 out of 230 deputies, and was elected the Majority Leader of Parliament.After Alam resigned his premiership in 1963, the forty-four-year-old Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi appointed forty-year-old Mansour Prime Minister. Like passing of the torch to a younger generation in America during the forty-year-old Kennedy, young Mansour introduced many young new faces, such as Amir Abbas Hoveida, Jamshid Amouzegar, Ataollah Khosravani, Dr. Nahavandi, Alinaghi Alikhani, Manouchehr Rohani, and many other Iran Novin members. Since most of his cabinet members were young and American/European educated, Mansour had pro-American tendencies in his politics and enjoyed the support of American government. Clearly the Shah now felt more comfortable working with people from his own generation than older generation who also served his father and called him "Shah Javan" or the "Young Shah". The torch was passed from the old war heroes to younger educated technocrats to carry out the "White Revolution" and an explosive decade of growth.Mansour passed the Geneva Convention American Force Protection Act, also known as the highly controversial Cap
