Miltiadis Evert (Greek: Μιλτιάδης Έβερτ; May 12, 1939 – February 9, 2011) was a Greek politician, a member of Parliament, Government minister, and ex-chairman of the New Democracy party.

Evert was born in Athens, Greece, the son of the Athens police chief Angelos Evert. He studied at the Athens School of Economics and Business Science. Evert served as the Mayor of Athens from January 1, 1987 to May 14, 1989, and he was Chairman of New Democracy from 1993 to 1997. He also served many times as minister. He was married to photographer Lisa Vanderpool, daughter of American archaeologist Eugene Vanderpool, and they had two daughters. His father, Angelos Evert, was chief of police during the Nazi occupation of Greece in WWII and was credited for saving many Jews and resistance fighters from Gestapo persecution. The Ewert family is of Bavarian origin, one of the families that settled in Athens during the reign of King Otto in the early 19th century.

As Mayor of Athens in 1987, Evert was the first to exercise the legal possibility of opposition radio broadcasting in Greece since all radio stations (including television networks) were a state monopoly. He helped launch Athena 98.4 FM, the first private radio station to begin broadcasting legally in Greece.

On February 9, 2011, Evert died in Athens at the age of 71.[1]
