YE AUNG THU / AFP

There's been a huge shake-up in North Korea's leadership.

The territory now has a new nominal head of state and a new premier.

Meanwhile in a mere formality, Kim Jong Un was re-elected as chairman of the State Affairs Commission.

However he's received a new title.

State media referred to him as the 'supreme representative of all the Korean people' for the first time.

Experts say the reshuffle solidifies Kim’s grip on power.
