Fuwad was the President of the Commission when he was dismissed by the Supreme Court on Suo Motto. He was a member of the Commission from 2008-09 and served as the President until 2014.
He had been active politically with governing MDP after his dismissal and competed in the last Parliamentary elections as an independent candidate for South Mahchangoalhi.
