Critics say they are private entities mostly tied with the financial
system (in fact, even legislators have more power on them than
governments). Additionally, the Central European Bank does not really
have any "government" to deal with.

For sure, their "independence" in western countries means that no
democratic control whatsoever on their functioning exists.
