Hope fraction (Persian: فراکسیون امید) is a parliamentary group in the Iranian Parliament, established after 2016 elections by reformists and pro-Rouhani administration politicians.

At the 7 May 2016 inaugural convention, they claimed 158 MPs attended the event, including every female and two Armenian minority representatives, and thus holding majority in the Parliament.[2] At the second convention, Mohammad Reza Aref was elected as the parliamentary leader by 105 MPs, a number less than 146 seats needed for a majority.[3]
