How to execute commands in internal zones of solaris using python running from the global zone ?

You might try subprocess, first of all. Use it to launch zlogin and
then treat it like a shell and write 'zonename\n' to its stdin, to
simulate running it as a user. This is a good bet, but I don't have
either available to try it. The subprocess documentation covers
invoking a process and writing to its input.

What you are doing now doesn't work, because you just invoke the two
processes and dont do anything with either of them. zlogin may not
have even completely initialized when you start the second command.
The technique you need is to start zlogin and then tell it to run the
next.
