He is a member of the Union of Moderate Parties, a conservative, moderate political party. When his party came to power in 1991, Vohor became foreign minister of Vanuatu for the first of three times, until 1993.

Vohor has been Prime Minister four times, from December 1995 to February 1996; from September 1996 to March 1998; from 28 July 2004, to 11 December 2004; and from 24 April 2011 to 13 May 2011. The latter, brief term was however voided by the Court of Appeal, deeming his election unconstitutional as he had been elected only by a majority of Members of Parliament (26 out of 52), not by an absolute majority.

In October 2015, Vohor was one of 15 MPs to be convicted of bribery by the Vanuatu Supreme Court and was jailed for 3 years. Vohor was Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Kilman government at the time of his conviction.
