I want to know the difference between 可決 and 許可.

I searched the dictionary and the meaning is quite the same: approval or permission.

So, what is the difference and how to use them differently?

1 Answer 1


They are entirely different

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