I want to convert simple plane (left) into randomly deform plane (right) using python scripting. The intented deformation should be in x,y dimension. Anybody has idea, I am newbei in blender-python.

myobj = bpy.context.active_object
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='EDIT')
selected_vertices = [i.co for i in myobj.data.vertices if i.select]

for i in selected_vertices:
    bpy.ops.transform.translate(value = i*random.uniform(-1,1), constraint_axis=(True, True, False), constraint_orientation='GLOBAL', mirror=False, proportional='DISABLED', proportional_edit_falloff='SMOOTH', proportional_size=1, release_confirm=True)

But we can help! Please describe what you've tried, what hasn't worked, and exactly what's going wrong. $\endgroup$ – Matt Jun 24 '16 at 13:39

Using bmesh on an edit mesh (run in edit mode)

import bpy
import bmesh
from mathutils import Vector
from random import uniform
context = bpy.context
obj = context.edit_object
mesh = obj.data
delta = 0.2
# get a bmesh
bm = bmesh.from_edit_mesh(mesh)
for v in bm.verts:
    if not v.select:
        continue
    v.co.xy += Vector([uniform(-delta, delta) for axis in "xy"])
#update.
bmesh.update_edit_mesh(mesh)

bpy.ops.transform.translate will translate all selected vertices. Using it in the loop as you had it, if all verts are selected would move all verts a random amount for each vert. (or nowhere for any vert with a 0 coordinate) You would need to copy the selection, deselect all, select them individually transform the single vert, deselect etc. Also remember scalar vector multiplication needs to be scalar * vector.
