More than 3 in 4 Catalan MPs in the Spanish Congress voted Yes to oust Mariano Rajoy from the Spanish presidency. And that automatically means swearing the Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez in as the next Spanish leader. While some lawmakers were more enthusiastic about stripping Rajoy of power than giving it to Sánchez, Catalan leaders already have high expectations for the seventh head of government in Spain since the restoration of democracy in the post-Franco era.
