On his return from Constantinople, his brilliant intellectual qualities attracted the attention of the government. He soon became known as the most competent of the government officials. He had already become the recognized leader of the Liberal Party. As a politician, he saw all the dangers that would have to be faced should Serbia embark on a policy of land redemption.
The Turkish army, always a formidable fighting force, would overwhelm the Serbs, if it could be wholly massed against them. After the assassination of Prince Mihailo in , he was nominated member of the council of regency, and on 2 January the third Serbian constitution, which was mainly his creation, was promulgated. Later, Old Serbia broke into rebellion, and this was followed by a similar movement in Bulgaria.

He died in Belgrade on September 4, Though cautious and deliberate by temperament, he was a man of strong will and firm character.
