Out of 20,237 students eligible to vote, 11,765 participated in the elections at an-Najah, the largest university in the West Bank.
The upcoming municipal elections, which were delayed several months amid disputes between Hamas and Fatah, are slated to take place in the West Bank only on May 13.
The cuts in salaries comes following a decrease in foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority.
The new date for the elections comes four months after the PA postponed elections following disputes between the rival Fatah and Hamas parties over the legitimacy of courts in Gaza.
Hamas and Fatah have been at loggerheads since the former took over the Gaza Strip in 2007 in an armed coup, ousting the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority from the coastal enclave.
“This ruling shows just how far apart the two major Palestinian parties are from reconciliation."
The division between Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and Fatah, which dominates the West Bank, has lasted for more than nine years. Will it soon come to an end?
The Constitutional Court is widely seen as a mechanism that enables Abbas to purge his opponents including Dahlan and his supporters.
The divide between Abbas and Dahlan supporters "is a reality now."
Dahlan and many of his allies attended and were elected to leadership positions at the last congress in 2009.
The Constitutional Court also specified in its ruling that Abbas did not violate the law when he issued a decree revoking the immunity of PLC parliamentarian and top Abbas rival Muhammed Dahlan.
Elections were postponed numerous times since due to Operation Protective Edge in 2014 and internal dysfunction.
The Arab Quartet, comprised of Jordan, Egypt, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia, has reportedly pressured Abbas to allow the return of Dahlan and his allies to Fatah.
The last Fatah General Congress took place in 2009 in Bethlehem, with more than 1,000 Fatah members participating.
Palestinian researcher says Fatah cannot declare itself the dominant force in Palestinian society.
Hamas’s official website said that Palestinian Authority Security Forces has arrested eight and summoned seven of its and other factions’ members.
Abbas and Arabi are expected to discuss the recent measures that were taken in order to solve the Palestinian issue, especially the French peace initiative.
Dahlan, a bitter rival of Abbas, was driven from Gaza after Hamas seized control of the coastal enclave in 2007.
Hamas representative Salah al-Bardawil said that the members of an alleged Fatah terror cell provided Hamas with information and documents that indicate that they had planned to kill Sisi.
The cell was allegedly preparing to carry out a series of assassinations against Fatah and Hamas leaders in Gaza, and paint them as part of an "ISIS scheme to destabilize the Gaza Strip."
Abbas allegedly dismissed the governor of Nablus, Akram Rajoub, after the latter wrote a post on his Facebook page criticizing Abbas' leadership.
The melee broke out during a rally marking the 28th anniversary of the assassination of the PLO’s Khalil al-Wazir (Abu Jihad), in Tunisia.
Appointment of Dr. Basri Saleh Smoudi draws criticism from top Fatah leader in the West Bank.
Official likely killed by bomb placed under vehicle.
Sources say that Abbas has decided to expand the Fatah team that is currently negotiating with Hamas to include more officials.
Jibril Rajoub rules out the possibility that Hamas-Fatah talks would lead to a “reconciliation” agreement between the rival Palestinian factions.
On the eve of the talks, both Hamas and Fatah expressed cautious optimism regarding the prospects of reaching a deal that would end their rift.
Last week, Fatah accused Nablus university professor of calling for the killing of Abbas and members of the PA security forces for their alleged collaboration with Israel.
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi makes remarks in interview with Palestinian TV.
Among those detained by Hamas are prominent leaders of Fatah in different parts of the Gaza Strip, the officials said.
By stealing their people's land and distributing it among their followers, Hamas and Fatah are further undermining the Palestinian dream of establishing a proper state.
