Below will help
Use xpath :- //button[@value='1' and @label='Search']

searchbutton = driver.find_element_by_xpath(//button[@value='1' and @label='Search'])

Try this will work:

JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;//create instance of javascript executor to do actions
WebElement buttonSubmit= driver.findElement(By.xpath("//button[@class='_42ft _4jy0 _4w98 _4jy3 _517h _51sy _4w97']"));
js.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", buttonSubmit);

You can try with tag.

#this code will get the list of tags and select the second tag from the list
element = driver.find_elements_by_tag_name('button')[1] 
#this will click the element
