"That journalist supports that candidate."
Translation:Şu gazeteci o adayı destekler.
The verb is desteklemek, so it's actually just in the simple present I believe ( +r for third person )
yes it's true. even though it ends with "-ler" it's not a plural word. the verb is "destekle+mek" (to support) and "-r" is stands for the present tense third person
