What? The European parliament *is* elected by the people and they have the final say over what the European Commission legislates. The head of the European Commission is appointed by the Council of Europe which is composed of (surprise, surprise) the governments of the respective European member states. The European Commissioners even have to be approved by the European Parliament.
Where is the democratic deficit in that?
Moreover, European officials are told to leave their national special interests at the door and work for the European people as a whole.
