Even after the Catalan Parliament voted illegally to approve a resolution declaring independence from Spain with a majority, the independence is still pending as the fugitive Catalan leader, Puigdemont, is in exile for illegal rebellious actions and is still vowing to lead Catalan government for independence while in Belgium. Puigdemont has now decided to step back from the presidency and stated that he will serve as president of counsel and that his MP, Jordi Sànchez, should be the candidate. As the confusion continues, no one knows what the future holds for Catalonia. Puigdemont does still not have all the approval in order for Catalonia to become its own country. The conflict continues as different parties strive to keep him out of Spain, and as some help him towards success.
