Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont will not try to be re-elected as president now that he is in prison in Germany. At least, for now. In a letter to his Junts per Catalunya (JxCat) parliamentary group, Puigdemont said they should continue to support Jordi Sànchez as presidential candidate, especially after the UN Committee on Human Rights urged Spain to protect his "political rights".
