I want to know the different between 可決 and 許可.

I search into dictionary and the meaning is quite the same whose meaning are approval or permission.

So, what different? and how to use it differently?

They are entirely different

  • 可決: approval of a matter by vote (←→ 否決: disapproval)
  • 許可: permission (←→ 不許可: 'no permission')
