Mensagem: 

You are probably correct despite what the dictionary says. I looked up both "mandate" and "term of office" in my dictionaries.

 

The Novo Michaelis says "term of office" is período de função

 

The word mandate, even though correct, seems sort of stuffy and sounds like legalese.  Your suggestion is better in many ways.
