Definitions for "Abd al-Wahhab Marjan"
Abd al-Wahhab Mirjan (1910–1964) (Arabic: عبد الوهاب مرجان) served as prime minister of Iraq for three months, (December 15, 1957 – March 3, 1958) at the time of that country's short-lived union with Jordan, which was formalized on February 14, 1958. A relative newcomer to the Iraqi government, Mirjan first joined the cabinet in 1957, and was lacking the passion of overseeing the unification of the two states. He therefore resigned, less than a month after the federation was declared, in favor of the more established political figure, Nuri as-Said.
