    Yes, it’s voted for by the parliament, which EU citizens vote for. Representative democracy. And can absolutely be held responsible by the people. The EU parliament can dissolve the comission if wanted.

      The commission is not voted for, and most importantly there is no practical way for people of the individual countries to hold the commission accountable. EU parliament can dissolve the commission in theory, however claiming that there is some direct accountability happening is beyond absurd.

      That is a bit misleading as the Comission is not directly voted for, but rather appointed by the head of states. But since all EU member states are democratic (with some reservations to Hungary these days), that is still more democratic than many similar economic coordination bodies.
