Independent deputy Tuma Çelik was acquitted Wednesday of a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault, due to a lack of evidence.
The former pro-PKK Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) lawmaker's travel ban has also been lifted.
It was claimed that Çelik sexually assaulted a woman during local election campaigning in 2019.
After the news of the alleged sexual assault broke, Çelik resigned from the HDP following pressure.
The prosecutor had demanded at least a 12-year prison sentence for Çelik on charges of sexual assault.
