Pedro Sánchez was reelected as Spain's prime minister on 16 November 2023 after agreeing to push for a generally unpopular amnesty deal for Catalan separatists, including exiled leader Charles Puigdemont (AP, Guardian, France 24). For a return to Spain to count, Puigdemont's presence in Spain must be publicly known, and entering and leaving the country without it being publicly known that he's in the country would not count (Antena 3 [in Spanish]). Whether Puigdemont returns voluntarily is immaterial.
