Radio Netherlands says not just yet, but the potential is definitely there.
The person with the most potential to be "da man" is currently Moroccan-born Ahmed Aboutaleb.
Mr. Aboutaleb was recently voted Mayor of Rotterdam by Rotterdam's City Council, making him the first ever Mayor in the Netherlands who is not a Dutch native.
The United States has a black president, but the Netherlands has never had a black prime minister. And plenty of other countries have had women heads of government - so why not the Netherlands?
The explanation is simple, says Radio Netherlands Worldwide's political editor Hans Andringa. It's simply a matter of time. "New Dutch" people have only been in the Netherlands for a matter of decades, and they have been active in politics for an even shorter time.
"Before you get to the top in a political party, so you're as widely recognised and acknowledged as you need to be to become a party leader, it takes a long time."
It has taken years for the number of MPs with ethnic minority backgrounds to build up to the present level, yet the figure is still no higher than eight percent of the total.
There are even fewer people from ethnic minorities in leading political positions. One exception is the Moroccan-born Achmed Aboutaleb. Currently the deputy social affairs minister, he has just been appointed mayor of Rotterdam. This has a particular resonance, because in recent years the city has been associated with tensions between white Dutch people and ethnic minorities, and was the home ground of the murdered rightwing populist politician Pim Fortuyn. Political commentators have pointed out that if Rotterdam had an elected mayor, it seems unlikely that Mr Aboutaleb would have made it to the post.

The untold story of the 1950s Berber uprising in northern Morocco.....
Fifty years ago, the people of Morocco's Rif mountains rebelled against the central government. The uprising was brutally put down by the Moroccan army and many of the Rif mountains' native Berbers left for Europe. The world's media didn't pay much attention to the 1958 rebellion, but it left its mark on many people's lives, including that of Mohamed Amezian, son of the rebel leader.
Barack Obama's victory is also being greeted with enthusiasm in Japan - especially in the city of Obama. The residents of the city, which is in the south near Kyoto, support the Democratic candidate mainly because of the shared name, but they have political reasons too.
My childhood best friend Saida, whom I hadn't seen or talked to for close to two decades, got on the phone and....
Hey, Ahmed Aboutaleb is now Mayor of Rotterdam hahaaa!I said: Yes, I read about that in the news. Isn't it awesome?She said: Remember when you had a fight with him?Hmm me a fight with Aboutaleb? What are you talking about?Saida: Hahaa well, maybe not a fight, more like an argument.I said: I used to run into him here and there, we knew some of the same people and I do remember having a few exchanges with him, but an argument?If I did, I don't remember.Saida goes: Well, maybe not an argument, but more like a discussion about politics and I remember clearly when you said you thought he was an arrogant prick and very stubborn...hahaaaa!Oh WOW really? I swear I don't remember that, but let me tell you something. I've been following his political career in the news for many years now and I'm so proud of him for all that he has accomplished in such a short period of time, despite all the apposition he had to face not just in Dutch society but within the Moroccan community as well.Saida then quickly changed the subject.
