No, because it might actually do more damage than good! Countries get to propose commissioners, but the elected parliament decides if they get appointed or not. Imaging the fun that would ensue, if the parliament rejected the proposed commissioner...
Just for the sake of absolute clarity...

If an MEP who is in favour of Brexit says that the EU is ruled over by the 'unelected' members of the EU Commission, that MEP would be saying so in the full knowledge that they belong to the only group of people who have a say if they are appointed or not?
