' The "premier"? What's this commie talk?!
Anyways, the "people who run the EU" include several councils which range from directly-democratically-elected to appointed-by-premier to the premiers themselves, but all of these councils come from voters either directly or indirectly.
Indirect representation is still democratic, and the EU is still democratic; but in the quibbling realm of demanding definitions the EU is not a democracy. This is most important to people who want to be technically correct, but make a dishonest claim.
