Nous devons utiliser une tierce personne comme témoin.

Bonjour - i'm confused as to why this is tierce instead of troisième.  The lesson stated that tierce is used for fractions or portions and troisième is used for rank or order.  A third party witness sounds like a ranking/ordering to me, and not a fraction or portion.

Would appreciate clarification.


This question relates to:
French lesson "Ordinal and cardinal numbers - differences between French and English usages"
