In this line, you assign new values to the name "statentityref" in each
iteration of the loop.

Here, you access the attribute "id" of the element you referenced by that
name, which is different in each iteration. But only the first element
seems to have a meaningful value for this attribute.
a) read the Python tutorial, especially the chapter on loops, and
b) assign the value of the "id" attribute to a variable outside the loop
and print it inside the loop
