People wave flags of Puerto Rico as they celebrate outside La Fortaleza on the day Governor Ricardo Rossello resigns from office in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Friday, Aug. 2, 2019. Puerto Rico's House voted in favor of the outgoing governor's chosen successor, Pedro Pierluisi, keeping his nomination alive for now. But confirmation by one of the island's two chambers will do little to ease uncertainty about who will become Puerto Rico's next governor when the current one -- forced out by weeks of massive street protests -- officially steps down at 5 p.m. Friday. Senate President Thomas Rivera Schatz delayed a discussion of Pierluisi's nomination until Monday.
