The voting showed a clear majority in favor of the Declaration:

In favor : 85 MPs

Against: 41 MPs

Abstention: 2 MPs

Most Catalan parties voted in favor of the people of Catalonia to have, for reasons of democratic legitimacy, the nature of a sovereign political and legal subject. It means to declare  the democratic sovereignty of the people of Catalonia as a political subject, as well as, if the people vote it, to effect the will to constitute Catalonia as a new state of Europe.

And so Catalonia continues its democratic march for freedom.
