Fawzi El-Mulki (19101962) (Arabic: فوزي الملقي) was a Jordanian diplomat and politician. While serving as ambassador to the United Kingdom in the early 1950s, he befriended King Hussein, who was studying there. In 1953 Hussein appointed al-Mulki to be prime minister of Jordan. He was dismissed in 1954 after his liberal policies caused riots throughout the country.
