We study the dynamics of supercooled liquid and the liquid-glass transition by applying mode-coupling theory to the charged hard-sphere system. By exploiting the two disposable parameters we investigate structurally the subtle and competitive role played by the short-range hard-core correlation and the long-range Coulomb tail. It is found that the Coulombic charge-factor effect is a dominant contribution to structure when the plasma parameter Γ500. Also, we examine the physical relevance of the mode-coupling parameters which are frequently used as mere experimental fitting parameters.
