Abdur Rahman Farès (Arabic: عبدالرحمن فارس‎), also spelled Abderrahmane Farès, (January 30, 1911-May 13, 1991) was the Chairman of the Provisional Executive of Algeria from 3 July 1962 to 25 September 1962.

Farès was a lawyer by profession. After the Second World War, Farès was elected to municipal council and the general council of Algiers. In the 1945 French Constituent Assembly election, Farès was the fourth candidate of the Union for Social Progress list for the Muslim non-citizen constituency of Algiers (which had four seats in total). The list won three of the four seats. When the elected Constituent Assembly member Bachir Abdelouahab resigned, Farès overtook his seat in the Assembly on March 14, 1946.[1]

In the Constituent Assembly he was included in the Interior, Algeria and General Administration Commission.[1]
