    Hi there!

    I haven't found on the forum (not in the dictionary) this expression: "rinnovare un mandato". Is "to renew a mandate" correct or are there other expressions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Quale? Del Presidente USA? Solo per curiosità.:)

    Not enough context. We need "linguistic context": ie the actual words in Italian! (Especially as regards the subject of the verb "renew".)

    The context is the following: "Date le circostanze, il Parlamento dovette rinnovare il mandato presidenziale".

    Can you please explain me what difference would make if the subject was another? Just for curisoity about other possible translations depending on the context. Thanks!

    "The Parliement was compelled to confirm (to renew) the President(ial) mandate". Soggetto e oggetto sono importanti: uno può tentare di farsi rinnovare il
    mandato e la situazione sarebbe diversa. Ciao.

    Whoops, a few mistakes here...
    In view of the circumstances, parliament had to renew the President's mandate.

    Grazie: "had" mi sembrava "povero", in questo caso. Ma se è errato, è errato!

    @longplay: Ok, la situazione sarebbe diversa, ma che "conseguenze lessicali" ci sarebbero?
    cosa cambierebbe nella traduzione se, come hai scritto, il presidente tentasse di farsi rinnovare il mandato?
    Grazie ancora!
