how to get the text of these paragraphs using selenium and xpath

I am trying to scrape this website enter link description here. we have almost ten different opportunities on each page. each one has its own title and details. I want to get all this information. I have written a python code that can locate other required tags and information but I can’t locate the paragraphs that contain a description in it.

here is my code.

    base_url = "https://www.enabel.be/content/enabel-tenders"
    driver.get(base_url)
    WebDriverWait(driver , 10).until(EC.visibility_of_element_located(
            (By.XPATH , "//*[@id='block-views-tenders-block']/div/div/div[@class='view-content']/div")))

    current_page_tag = driver.find_element(By.XPATH ,
                                               "//*[@id='block-views-tenders-block']/div/div/div[3]/ul/li[2]").text.strip()
    all_divs = driver.find_elements(By.XPATH ,
                                        "//*[@id='block-views-tenders-block']/div/div/div[@class ='view-content' "
                                        "]/div")


      for each_div in all_divs :

            singleData = {
                # could not detect
                "language" : 107 ,
                # means open
                "status" : 0 ,
                "op_link" : "" ,
                "website" : website_name ,
                "close_date" : '' ,
                # means not available
                "organization" : website_name ,
                "description" : "" ,
                "title" : '' ,
                "checksum" : "" ,
                # means not available
                "country" : '' ,
                "published_date" : ''
            }

            singleData['title'] = each_div.find_element(By.XPATH ,
                                                        ".//span[@class='title-accr no-transform']").text.strip()
    
                singleData['country'] = each_div.find_element(By.XPATH ,
                                                              ".//div[1]/div/div/div[@class ='field-items']/div").text.strip()
                close_date = each_div.find_element(By.XPATH , ".//div//div[1]/div").text.strip()
    
                 #description always returns me empty text.
                description = each_div.find_element(By.XPATH, ".//div/div[2]/div[3]/div[2]/div/p").text.strip()
                download = each_div.find_elements_by_xpath('.//div//div[2]/div[4]/div[2]//a')
                download_file_link = []
                for eachfile in download :
                    download_file_link.append(eachfile.get_attribute('href'))

my code can get the title, country, deadline, and its attachment but can’t get the description part. it returns me an empty text but when I see it on the website it has text in it.

can anyone help me with the issue and solution. thanks in advance

Answer

Use a try except to catch it if it’s there.There’s some   so might need to remove it.

for each_div in all_divs :
     #description always returns me empty text.
    try:
        description = each_div.find_element(By.XPATH, ".//div[contains(text(),'Description')]/parent::div/div[2]//p[1]").get_attribute('innerHTML')
        print(description)
    except:
        print('none')

You could use

for each_div in all_divs :
     #description always returns me empty text.
    try:
        description = each_div.find_elements(By.XPATH, ".//div[contains(text(),'Description')]/parent::div/div[2]//p")
        for desc in description:
            print(desc.get_attribute('textContent'))
    except:
        print('none')
