mandate (n.)

16世纪, “命令, 司法或法律命令”, 来自法语 mandat (15世纪), 直接来自拉丁语 mandatum “委托, 命令, 命令”, 名词使用 mandare “命令, 交付一个人负责” 的中性过去分词, 字面意思是“交给一个人”, 可能来自 manus “手” (来自PIE根 *man- (2) “手” )+ dare “给” (来自PIE根 *do- “给” ).

政治意义上的“据说是选民赋予选举获胜者所倡导的政策或口号的认可” 出自1796年. 国际联盟意义上的“国际联盟发布的委员会, 授权一个选定的权力机构为特定目的管理和开发一个领土” (也用于指定的领土) 是从1919年开始的.
