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。
