Candidatus

Un senador que es presentava a les eleccions per a una magistratura, com podia ser la pretura o el consolat, es vestia amb toga blanca, es a dir, candida. D'aqui el terme candidatus, que ha sobreviscut a 2500 anys d'historia.

A roman senator who entered in elections for a magistrature like the consulate dressed in an all-white toga, candida in latin. So he was named candidatus, a surviving political word.
