What Is a President's Veto?

Answer

A president's veto is the order by the president to stop a legislation or official government action. It may be absolute or limited, e.g. a two-thirds vote in parliament may override the veto, depending on the country. It is used by the president to stop changes, not to create them.

A presidential veto is the rejection of a bill passed by the majority votes of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The threat of a presidential veto is sufficient motivation for Congress to modify the bill prior to its final passage. The Congress can vote to override a presidential veto, but this is rare.
