The Independent Civic Organisation of South Africa (ICOSA) is a political party formed by former ANC Karoo District Municipality manager Truman Prince. Prince was expelled from the ANC in January 2006.
Jeffrey Donson, formerly at the National People’s Party (NPP), is the current president of ICOSA.
ICOSA once had a coalition with the DA, which later collapsed. The party says: “The DA/ICOSA coalition took power in the Kannaland Local Municipality in August 2006 when the short-lived ANC-led coalition pact with the DA collapsed.”
In the 2011 municipal election, ICOSA regained a plurality in the Kannaland municipality with three seats while the ANC and the DA won two each.
ICOSA in 2016 got 44 242 votes (0.11%).
