Nope, that is a completely different body....MEP's are indeed elected, but they don't make legislation or rules...they are dreamt up by the aforementioned 26 unelected commisionaires.
Except that they, the commissioners are approved by the parliament, are accountable to the parliament and can be removed by the parliament. Furthermore the council of ministers have a right of veto and at least for the UK and Ireland they are also elected representatives.
