    Sat depressed

    This sentence just popped up in my mind, but I believe its construction is not grammatically correct. Would someone help me and correct it so that is sounds natural.

    The ministers sat depressed in their chairs as if condemned to death sentence, watching their party losing the election.

    Would it be possible another version?

    Watching their party lose the election, the depressed ministers sat in their chairs like prisoners condemned to death.
