Canak, the leader of the League of the Social-Democrats of Vojvodina (LSV), was charged with involvement in the incident that took place in front of a tavern in Novi Sad in September 2012.
Canak was alleged to have been accompanied by his security when he battered Lesanovic, who previously directed a series of insults at him.
The prosecution asked for a guilty verdict and eight months in prison, two years suspended sentence, while the defense sought the acquittal of their client.
Both Canak and the prosecution can appeal today's ruling.
