DescriptionParty launched by millionaire brothers and industrialists Domingo and Antonio Monteiros. Both brothers with allies split from the ruling MLSTP parliamentary group in 2018 after it failed to protect its business interests from Angolan seizure for political reasons (the MLSTP was allied to the Angolan Marxist government).

Party was originally launched as the Movement of Independent Citizens of Sao Tome and Principe (Movimento Cidadão Independente de São Tomé e Príncipe, MCISTP), changing its name in November 2020 to add in 'Socialist Party' (Movimento de Cidadãos Independentes - Partido Socialista, MCI-PS).

Party has a base in the Caué constituency of the country and acts more like a power broker (or spoiler) between the main parties. The MCI-PS has two MPs in parliament Party chose to nominate Júlio Silva, a former Minister of the Economy and former executive of the Empresa de Água e Electricidade, as its 2021 presidential candidate.
