The term 'presidential veto' refers to the veto power vested with the President. The word veto has its origin in Latin. It was taken from the word vetō. Vetō is the present tense (first person singular) of the vetare. It means I forbid. Veto is the constitutional right of one department, especially government department, to reject or refuse approval of proposed measures. These measures are proposed by another department. A bill that is passed by the legislature is rejected by a veto. Veto is the prerogative of a chief executive to prevent the enactment of this bill into law. Thus, the veto when it is exercised by a President is called Presidential veto.

The exercise of this right by the president is also called Presidential veto. The rejection of the bill is done by preparing an official document to that effect. This document or message stipulating reasons for the veto is also termed veto. The process or act of rejection of a proposed act could also be termed veto.
