"Those with the relevant titles might very well be a proper electorate for the communities occupying the land so bought. But only those areas."

So those areas with NO resident population, such as MOST of the land of Mandate Palestine in 1921, have NO proper electorate, and can be transferred by the nation controlling it (Turkey, as the follow-on to the Ottoman Empire) to the league of Nations , which placed it under Mandate.
