He became Prime Minister in 1960 and again in 1978 a few months before the overthrow of the Shah. He was appointed Prime Minister by Shah on August 27, 1978 because of his ties to clergy. During his short tenure, he undid many of the Shah's plans including the closing of casinos, abandoning the Imperial calendar, abolishing the Rastakhiz Party and allowing all political parties to be active. All of his efforts to reform the political system in Iran were overshadowed by the Black Friday massacre in Jaleh Square (September 8, 1978), mass protests, martial law and nationwide strikes, which brought the country's economy to its knees. He resigned his post on November 6, 1978.For some years he was also the Grand Master of the Freemasonry Grand Lodge of Iran, which gave him some informal influence among Iran's political elite. He was notorious as one of the most corrupt officials in Shah's regime (nicknamed Mr. 5 Percent). He died on June 16, 1998 in New York City.
