This example will show you how to run multiple bash commands with subprocess in python.

We need to use shell=True in subprocess:

def subprocess_cmd(command):
    process = subprocess.Popen(command,stdout=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True)
    proc_stdout = process.communicate()[0].strip()
    print proc_stdout

subprocess_cmd('echo c; echo d')

Output:

c
d
