Masagos was also promoted to Second Minister for Home Affairs and Foreign Affairs.

Masagos himself said he was honoured to have been appointed and that "[h]aving two Malay full ministers in the Cabinet for the first time in our nation's history reflects the [Government's] trust and recognition of the good progress made by the Malay-Muslim community".

On 28 September 2015, it was announced that Masagos will be the Minister for Environment and Water Resources from 1 October 2015.
